We describe results obtained in prototyping a Kohonen self-organising feature map as a user interface to a large document collection. We then discuss the provision of various tools which will be used in quality control of databases and catalogs produced from, and cross-referenced with, the online astronomical literature; and which will be used in future information seeking and processing intelligent agent technologies.
