Traditionally, adaptive hypermedia research concentrates on "closed" applications (with fixed contents). Certain applications ask for an extension of the contents considered, with data obtained through information retrieval. This paper addresses this issue, and tries to give an insight into research questions concerning the embedding of information retrieval in adaptive hypermedia. We take a look at this issue in the context of an abstract reference model (AHAM), and in the context of a concrete implementation framework (AHA!). The goal of this paper is to identify some of the relevant questions, to give directions for solutions, and to raise the discussion on this interesting extension to adaptive hypermedia.
