An Experimental System for Adaptive Services in Information Retrieval
Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Adaptive Information Retrieval (AIR 2008)
Information retrieval and digital library systems of today offer only minimal personalisation and customisation functionality for individual users and user groups. Daffodil is a virtual digital library with strategic user support, and allows gathering of rich information about users -- implicitly and explicitly through special tools and an integrated event logging framework. Based on the collected data Daffodil is used to experiment with innovative adaptive services for information retrieval. This paper presents extensions of the Daffodil architecture used for building such adaptive services, and possible personalisation and adaptive usage scenarios.
