A Plugin Architecture Enabling Federated Search for Digital Libraries [chapter]

Sergey Chernov, Christian Kohlschütter, Wolfgang Nejdl
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Today, users expect a variety of digital libraries to be searchable from a single Web page. The German Vascoda project provides this service for dozens of information sources.  ...  Currently, however, the Vascoda portal is based on a non-cooperative metasearch approach, where results from sources are merged randomly and ranking quality is sub-optimal.  ...  Introduction Information integration over distributed sources is an urgent problem to be solved for providing access to a variety of Digital Libraries through a common search interface and portal.  ...
