In this paper, we propose a conceptual architecture for a personal semantic Web information retrieval system. It incorporates semantic Web, Web service, P2P and multi-agent technologies to enable not only precise location of Web resources but also the automatic or semi-automatic integration of Web resources delivered through Web contents and Web services. In this architecture, the semantic issues concerning the whole lifecycle of information retrieval were considered consistently and the integration of Web contents and Web services is enabled seamlessly.
