Introduction. Processes and practices for information management service delivery, including retention, retrieval and disposal of documents and records, are not easily quantified for benchmarking and performance improvement. Method. A mainly qualitat... Read More about The case for a risk-assessed approach to organizational records management in the oil and gas sector..

The case for e-book literacy: undergraduate students' experience with e-books for course work. (2013)
Journal Article
MUIR, L. and HAWES, G. 2013. The case for e-book literacy: undergraduate students' experience with e-books for course work. Journal of academic librarianship [online], 39(3), pages 260-274. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.acalib.2013.01.002

This paper investigates how electronic books (e-books) are used for scholarly activity. It focuses on the end-users of e-books in a case study which aimed to establish how scholars use and learn from e-books and the limitations of academic e-books. T...

Content-prioritised video coding for British Sign Language communication. (2007)
Thesis
MUIR, L.J. 2007. Content-prioritised video coding for British Sign Language communication. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Video communication of British Sign Language (BSL) is important for remote interpersonal communication and for the equal provision of services for deaf people. However, the use of video telephony and video conferencing applications for BSL communicat... Read More about Content-prioritised video coding for British Sign Language communication..

Perceptions of sign language and its application to visual communications for deaf people. (2005)
Journal Article
MUIR, L.J. and RICHARDSON, I.E.G. 2005. Perceptions of sign language and its application to visual communications for deaf people. Journal of deaf studies and deaf education [online], 10(4), pages 390-401. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1093/deafed/eni037

Video communication systems for deaf people are limited in terms of quality and performance, particularly at low bit rates. Analysis of visual attention mechanisms for sign language may enable optimisation of video coding systems for deaf users. Eye...

Gaze tracking and its application to video coding for sign language. (2003)
Conference Proceeding
MUIR, L., RICHARDSON, I. and LEAPER, S. 2003. Gaze tracking and its application to video coding for sign language. In Proceedings of the 2003 Picture coding symposium (PCS 2003), 23-25 April 2003, Saint-Malo, France. Le Chesnay: INRIA, pages 321-325.

Sign language communication via videotelephone has demanding visual quality requirements. In order to optimise video coding for sign language it is necessary to quantify the importance of areas of the video scene. Eye movements of deaf users are trac...
