A neural network approach to user modeling is proposed in the context of information retrieval. User level of expertise and the inquiry interests underlying the goals are considered as two major factors affecting information provision. A prototype system, UM-net, is presented for modeling user domain experiences and the inquiry interests and tailoring the descriptions about software packages provided to a user.
