Summary

Sally Jo Cunningham is a founding member of the New Zealand Digital Libraries Research Group, who are the developers of the Greenstone software. Her research primarily focuses on digital library users and their information behaviour, over text, image, video, and music documents; she is particularly interested in how information behaviour changes as people move to digital documents, and in how we can support the 'non-native' behaviour seen with physical collections, in the digital library.

My research interests include, machine learning, digital libraries, computer education and computer applications in textiles. Current activities can be grouped into two main headings: Machine learning: 1) I am a member of the Waikato ML research group, and am particularly interested in applications of ML to text databases. 2) Computing education: Areas of focus here include research into factors encoraging/discouraging the participation of women in tertiary computing education programs; the effective use of conferencing systems in computing courses; and an examination of library and writing anxiety in computing majors.
