A combination of the strengths of both classic information retrieval with the distributed approach of P2P networks can avoid both their weaknesses: The organisation of document collections relevant for special communities allows both high coverage and quick access. We present a theoretical framework in which the semantic structure between words can be deduced from a document collection. This structural knowledge can then be used to connect document collections to communities based on their content.
