Abstract—E-book reading has become increasingly popular,
the library began to provide joyful and interactive multimedia
e-book recommendation system. The purpose of this study is to
understand the characteristics of information seeking behavior
of different users. Based on the back-end database of New Taipei
City Library's e-book wall, we collected 655 users' borrowing
materials and analyzed the knowledge keywords by text mining
method to make a comparative study. With the expansion of
library services, the purpose of the library is no longer limited to
the academic orientation, and we also observed the emergence of
entertainment and leisure-oriented readers. Understanding
users’ information seeking characteristics in e-book
recommendation system will be conducive to the development of
intelligent library and provide a reference for the system design.
Index Terms—Information seeking, knowledge map, text mining, information visualization.
