1. A “Context Finder”: Whenever an online text is being read, a search interface can be invoked to support a search in an appropriate searchable resource for a place, person, topic, or event and display the explanation.
2. A “Context Builder”: An enhanced Context Finder with the ability to insert the search query and choice on resource as mark-up in the text.
3. “Context Providing”: When links to an explanatory resource have been marked-up in a text, the links can be extracted, reversed, and pasted into the resource such that the resource becomes enriched with links to mentions of the place, person, or topic in the text. As of February 2008, a prototype Context Finder accessing a limited range of resources is being used with biographical articles in the Wikipedia and with periodical articles on Irish culture and history. By the ASIST Annual Meeting we expect to be able to describe and demonstrate a more extensive Context Finder, a Context Builder, and an example of “Context Providing.”
