Presenting tailored resource descriptions: will XSLT do the job?

Alison Cawsey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The problem of finding relevant resources from those available across the World Wide Web is well recognised. Improved search engines provide part of the answer, but we also need to support the user in assessing for themselves the relevance of documents suggested by a search engine, prior to download. One way to do this is to provide them with descriptions tailored to their profile and query. This paper presents examples of how XSLT may be used to create tailored descriptions from RDF metadata, and explores whether XSLT is an adequate tool for this task.
