An Effective Technique for Context – Based Digital Collection Search

M. Thangaraj and V. Gayathri

Abstract—At present the major issues in searching digital collections are (a) topic diffusion: results returned by a keyword based search, fall into multiple topic areas, which are not interested to users; (b) there is no effective scoring mechanism; so the users are forced to scan a large result set, which leads them to miss the important ones. In order to help the users, we propose a technique, NCBS (New Context Based Search). This approach uses the data structures such as B+-Tree and an inverted list. The extensive study shows that the proposed approach effectively controls the diversity of output topics, reduces the size of the search results, and has better performance than the existing method.

Index Terms—Context–Based Search (CBS), digital library, b+-tree, inverted list, digital collection.
