Search Engine Facilities

Library of Congress needs a search engine to facilitate access to its' resources. Because of the nature of data, building a search engine is very challenging. CADS people have been working on Latent Semantic Indexing, Learned Ranking Functions and Multilingual Search. Our prototype of  search engine which uses learned ranking functions will be available online soon.  This search engine is built on LoC's photo stream on Flickr with the purpose of demonstrating the power of Learned Ranking Functions.
