Description Readers in digital libraries (DL) usually do not lack information, on the contrary while browsing a DL they often struggle with too many documents. Searching and displaying search results appropriately becomes important. This demonstration shows an experimental interface that displays search results in two forms: textual (which the readers are used to) and visual. Displaying search results as networks of similar documents, articles of the same author or articles with the same keywords often reveal new information. Presented application is a web page with a Java Applet communicating with the rest of the page and integrated in Czech Mathematics DL website.
