A new app combines semantic knowledge resources and technologies, such as a biomedical knowledge base, a semantic search engine, a distributed search engine, and a variety of smart content analysis and discovery services. The NLMplus can concurrently access 60 National Library of Medicine (NLM) databases, with a simple Google/Bing like user interface.

This interesting information was found on Digital Journal in their article, “Semantics for Better Results in Search and Discovery.” The Semantic Search Engine produces relevant search results with improved precision and recall from 1.6 million PubMed Review articles that are semantically indexed and searched on a WebLib server.

Domain independent semantic indexing and searching of local databases allows organizations to better serve their diverse user communities.
