Abstract
People with complex information needs are for example Humanities researchers, who need advanced search engines to investigate their research questions. Much can be gained by combining research datasets, reusing tools and serendipitously discovering new insights for further research. Humanities researchers have different (large-scale) research datasets and tools, which are described differently with metadata. We present a highly interactive advanced search engine for Humanities researchers that semantically converges differently structured metadata records from different collections and institutions. It has features that support serendipitous and focused search i...
