Abstract

Structured document retrieval requires different user graphical interfaces from standard Information Retrieval. An Information Retrieval system dealing with structured documents has to enable a user to query, browse retrieved documents, provide query refinement and relevance feedback based not only on full documents, but also on specific document structural parts. In this paper, we present a new graphical user interface for structured document retrieval that provides the user with an intuitive and powerful set of tools for structured document searching, retrieved list navigation, and search refinement. We also present the results of a preliminary evaluation of the interface which highlights strengths and weaknesses of the current implementation and suggests directions of future work.
