Federated search: how far back does the term go? | Federated Search BlogFederated Search

For those of you who aren’t aware, blog sponsor Deep Web Technologies has its own blog. The blog started in December of last year and has been gaining momentum in recent months.

My brother, Abe, just posted an article on the Deep Web Technologies blog challenging readers to find the oldest reference to the term “federated search” in the literature. The oldest reference Abe could find dates back to May 1996, in an IEEE Computer Magazine article entitled “Federating Diverse Collections of Scientific Literature.”

Can you find an older reference?
