In this paper, we describe how we support mobile access to Físchlár-News, a large-scale library of digitised news content, which supports browsing and content-based retrieval of news stories. We discuss both the desktop and mobile interfaces to Físchlár-News and contrast how the mobile interface implements a different interaction paradigm from the desktop interface, which is based on constraints of designing systems for mobile interfaces. Finally we describe the technique for automatic news story segmentation developed for Físchlár-News and we chart our progress to date in developing the system.
