The Daffodil system is a virtual digital library system for strategic support of users during the information search process. It implements mainly high-level search functions, so-called stratagems, which provide functionality beyond today's digital libraries. The Daffodil system was developed as a research project starting as a collaboration between the University of Dortmund and the IZ Bonn, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. Currently the Daffodil framework is extended to become an experimental evaluation platform for digital library evaluation at the University of Duisburg-Essen.
