Developing effective and efficient retrieval techniques for multimedia data is a challenging issue in building a digital library. Unlike most previously proposed retrieval approaches that focus on a specific media type, this paper presents 2M2Net as a generic framework for retrieval of multimodality data in digital libraries. As its specific approaches, a learning-fromelements strategy is devised for propagation of semantic descriptions, and a cross media search mechanism with relevance feedback is proposed for evaluation and refinement of user queries. Experiments conducted on a digital encyclopedia manifest the effectiveness and flexibility of our approaches.
