summary Information overload is one of the biggest problems currently omnipresent in the word largest network, the Internet. No general solution exists therefore it is important to handle this problem at least in certain areas. Large collections of articles are available to the users ofthe Internet. Since technology is very easy to handle for information providers, literally every person who has access to a computer, which is connected to the internet, is able to provide articles for other users. Unfortunately, all these collections generate additional informationoverload. Once people are aware of a new service-provider, it is impossible for users to read all the articles provided to them. This article is divided in two parts: First, we discuss the concept of finding the right collection of articles and the right articles in this collection. Second, we discuss mechanisms for finding the right parts to read in an article.
