Interestingly, there was a 15-year gap in relevance reviews between the one by Saracevic (1975) and those that began appearing on an almost regular basis since after 1990. 22 Tefko Saracevic In addition to reviewing the progress in relevance research or challenging a prevalent paradigm or line of thought, these reviews also provided a synthesis on the basis of which relevance models were projected. We concentrate here on several models proposed in major reviews. Models are abstractions forming general ideas from specific examples.
Models are abstractions forming general ideas from specific examples. Their importance is great because they are a basis for given standpoints that predicate given types of actions and exclude other types. Indeed, different relevance models suggest different actions. A. Dynamic Model For a fleeting decade, relevance had its Camelot. It was in Syracuse. From about the mid-1980s until about the mid-1990s, a series of doctoral dissertations at the School of Information Studies, Syracuse University, addressed various aspects of relevance, reflecting a vigorous research environment under the guiding spirit of Robert Taylor and Jeffrey Katzer.
Schutz’s concepts related to relevance were already summarized in Part I (Saracevic, 1976, p. 84–85), but are mentioned here again since they continue to have implication for theoretical thinking on relevance in information science; it is knowledge worth borrowing. Briefly, Schutz characterized structure and functioning of the ‘‘life-world’’— situations that people face in the reality of everyday life. These situations form layers—life-world is stratified. Relevance is the principle for stratification and dynamic interplay among strata.
