Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4675)


Current digital libraries and online bibliographies share several properties with the Web and thus also share some of its problems. Faceted classifications and Semantic Web technologies are explored as possible approaches to improving digital libraries and alleviating their respective shortcomings. We describe the possibilities of using faceted navigation and its personalization in digital libraries. We propose a method of faceted browser adaptation based on an automatically acquired user model with support for dynamic facet generation.
