    Abstract

    Web surfers often face the need for additional information beyond the page they are currently reading. While such related material is available in digital library repositories, finding it within these repositories can be a challenging task. In order to ease the burden for the user, we present an approach to construct queries automatically from a textual paragraph. Named entities from the paragraph and a query scheme, which includes the topic of the paragraph form the two pillars of this approach, which is applicable to any search system, that supports keyword queries. Evaluation results point towards users not being able to find optimal queries and needing support in doing so.
