    Cultural content providers face the challenge of disseminating their content to the general public. Meanwhile, access to Web resources shifts from desktop to mobile devices and the wide range of contextual sensors of those devices can be used to proactively retrieve and present resources in an unobtrusive manner. This proactive process, also known as just-in-time retrieval, increases the amount of information viewed and hence is a viable way to increase the visibility of cultural content. We provide a contextual model for mobile just-in-time retrieval, discuss the role of sensor information for its contextual dimensions and show the model’s applicability with a prototypical implementation. Our proposed approach enriches a user’s web experience with cultural content and the developed model can provide guidance for other domains.
