Web portals provide an entry point for information presentation and exchange over the Internet for various domains of interest. Current Internet technologies, however, often fail to provide users of Web portals with the type of information or level of service they require. Limitations associated with the Web affect the users of Web portals ability to search, access, extract, interpret, and process information. The Semantic Web (Berners-Lee, Hendler, & Lassila, 2001) enables new approaches to the design of such portals and has the potential of overcoming these limitations by enabling machines to interpret information so that it can be integrated and processed more effectively.
