  • An analysis of usage of a digital library

    Jones, Steve; Cunningham, Sally Jo; McNab, Rodger J. (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1998-06)
    As experimental digital library testbeds gain wider acceptance and develop significant user bases, it becomes important to investigate the ways in which users interact with the systems in practice. Transaction logs are one ...
  • A compression-based algorithm for Chinese word segmentation

    Teahan, W.J.; Wen, Yingying; McNab, Rodger J.; Witten, Ian H. (Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1999-09)
