The paper proposes a novel information retrieval framework by providing a customized, dynamic and multi-domain user interface for a search engine. This uses the idea of fragmentation of information into different domains before the actual search starts. This is realized by dividing the search criteria into different parameters or features of that domain. The user is assisted to enter only domain specific keywords. The user is also given the choice to select more than one search criteria to refine the search. The proposed system, which has been demonstrated with two different domains, can be replicated on other domains without changing the logic and the format of the database.
