Vast sources of information, such as the Internet are difficult to browse and/or search through. Existing tools can be sometimes frustrating for many people. So far a number of techniques have been proposed to deliver user-oriented solutions. The problem re-surfaces however within a ubiquitous computing paradigm. Aside from a possible delay in response time, there are additional drawbacks with respect to mobile devices such as: Bandwidth size, storage(what type of costs do you mean) and performance costs and client UI size. In this paper we introduce three search and browsing features: fulltext search, collaborative filtering and multifaceted browsing, all of which can be enriched with se- mantic and community information. We present two of the aforementioned techniques implemented in our interface for digital libraries - DigiMe.
