Providing quick and easy access to electronic catalogs of products is one of the most essential parts in the electronic catalog environment. Proposed in this paper are data and query model for electronic catalogs which offer effective searching and management facilities to customize the electronic catalog system. The proposed model separates the management of product information and the visual presentation. Product information is represented as a graph. The model extends the range of electronic catalogs from product information to the whole web documents and their structure. The proposed query language makes the extended catalog more dynamic, flexible, and easy to maintain.
