The authors introduce query-free information retrieval, a paradigm in which queries are constructed autonomously and information relevant to a user is offered without explicit request. Query-free methods offer an apparently new approach for integrating knowledge-based applications with legacy databases. The authors describe a fielded system, Fixit, which integrates an expert diagnostic system with a preexisting full-text database of maintenance manuals. The reported results suggest that query-free information retrieval can liberate the user from burdensome information retrieval activities while incurring only modest system development costs and minimal run-time costs.
