A central issue for making the contents of documents in a digital library accessible to the user is the identification and extraction of technical terms. We propose a method to approach this task in an unsupervised, domain-independent way: We use a nominal group chunker to extract term candidates and select the technical terms from these candidates based on string frequencies retrieved using the MSN search engine.
