Domain-specific information retrieval normally depends on general search engines which make no use of domain knowledge and require a user to look at a linear display of loosely organised search results, or hand-crafted specialised systems with a better browsing interface but which are costly to build and maintain. We are developing an approach to domain specific information retrieval that makes much greater use of domain expert knowledge. As part of this we have developed a browsing mechanism
