Abstract

In this paper we propose a methodology for automatically retrieving document collections from the web on specific topics and for organizing them and keeping them up-to-date over time, according to user specific persistent information needs. The documents collected are organized according to user specifications and are classified partly by the user and partly automatically. A presentation layer enables the exploration of large sets of documents and, simultaneously, monitors and records user interaction with these document collections. The quality of the system is permanently monitored; the system periodically measures and stores the values of its quality parameters. Using this quality log it is possible to maintain the quality of the resources by triggering procedures aimed at correcting or preventing quality degradation.
