Abstract

In this paper, we present a system that helps users access various types of information sources using ontologies. An ontology consists of a set of concepts and their relationships in a domain of interests. The system analyzes an ontology provided by a user so that the user can search and browse Wikipedia [1], DBpedia [4], PubMed [5], and the Web by utilizing the information in the ontology. In particular, terms defined in the ontology are mapped to Wikipedia pages and the navigation history of a user is saved so that it can serve as a personalized ontology. In addition, users can create and edit ontologies using the proposed system. We show that the proposed system can be used in an educational environment.
