||In specific domains, such as newspaper news, virtual libraries,
videos or music repositories, the available specialised search engines use to
offer to the users more complex interfaces than the generic ones. These
interfaces allow to specify constraints about specific features of the resources
being searched, as the date of an article, the price of a book or
the duration of a movie. On the other hand we have traditional specialised
meta-search engines, those engines that help users in their search process
by automatically querying a set of specialised search engines available for a
given domain. This kind of engines usually offer only a “one-field” interface
to the user because of the difficulty to feature the interface particularities of
each underlying specialised engine. Our approach allows to overcome this
limitation without doing any presumption over the existing technologies.
We have developed a practical application, an advanced news meta-search
engine that could be easily adapted to cover other domains.
