<p>Although research on integrating e-catalogs has gained considerable momentum over the years, researchers have largely ignored the need to build adaptive catalogs. System designers who design catalogs have a priori expectations of how users will explore catalogs. However, they also should consider how users actually use catalogs because the users might have different expectations. On the basis of observed customer interaction patterns, the WebCatalogPers system creates integrated product catalogs that continuously adapt and can be restructured in a dynamic environment.</p>
