Abstract
We present a method of searching text collections that takes
advantage of hierarchrical information within documents and
integrates searches of structured and unstructured data. We
show that Multidimensional databases (MDB), designed for
accessing data along hierarchical dimensions, are effective
for information retrieval. We demonstrate a method of using
On-Line Analytic Processing (OLAP) techniques on a text
collection. This combines traditional information retrieval
and the slicing, dicing, drill-down, and roll-up of OLAP. We
demonstrate use of a prototype for searching documents from
