Radev, Dragomir R.; Aho, Alfred V.; Chang, Shih-Fu; McKeown, Kathleen; Smith, John; Zaman, Kazi

In this paper we describe an ongoing research project called the Columbia Digital News System. The goal of this project is to develop a suite of effective interoperable tools with which people can find relevant information (text, images, video, and structured documents) from distributed sources and track it over a period of time. Our initial focus is on the development of a system with which researchers, journalists, and students can keep track of current news events in specific areas.
