Abstract

This paper presents preliminary results of our current research project DiLiA ( Di gital Li brary A ssistant). The goals of the project are are twofold. One goal of the project is the development of em domain-independent information extraction methods. The other goal is the development of information visualization methods that interactively support researchers at time consuming information discovery tasks. We first describe issues that contribute to high cognitive load during exploration of unfamiliar research domains. Then we present a domain-independent approach to technical term extraction from paper abstracts, describe the architecture of the DiLiA, and illustrate an example co-author network visualization.
