Abstract

See full text

The system of the present invention provides for a method and apparatus of displaying portions of text from multiple documents over multiple databases related to a search query. The initial step in this method is to identify a search query. Based on this identification, a search against multiple databases is initiated. In particular, the computer system identifies auxiliary databases either within a network or between networks that are likely to contain documents relating to terms in the search query. Upon identification of these databases, the databases are then searched to identify those documents relating to the identified query. The various sets of identified documents from multiple databases are then returned and processed to create an ordered ranking for the returned documents. Text portions from the highest ranking documents across the multiple databases are then automatically displayed to the user.
