■Research summary
Information Access Technologies for Digital Libraries

 We are doing research mainly on information access technologies to facilitate the organization and use of a vast amount of text media information. In recent years, an increasing amount of information has become available online, but it is becoming difficult to find the desired information from it. In order to support users in accessing information that matches his/her needs, we research techniques for information retrieval, which is the basis of information access technologies, as well as data mining techniques to discover useful knowledge hidden in a vast amount of information, information recommendation techniques that recommends useful information according to the user’s interests, search and mining techniques for valuable historical materials that have been increasingly digitized, and multilingual information retrieval which enables access to information written in various languages in the world.
