The purpose of this study as a whole is to investigate how to simulate the human intermediary who has domain knowledge and its structure for her/his information user by applying an automated intermediary with mediated IR system and a novel structured interface. We hypothesize that this mediated IR system would be better than a direct IR system without support of a source collection (e.g., traditional Web engines), in information search performances. The second hypothesis examines different results in information search performances from different ways of displaying the search results.

Due to the paper size limit (2 pages), I will present the detailed findings and system interface images as an appendix for the poster presentation.
