Abstract: The basic goal of this article is to demonstrate the process of detecting useful ideas from small web query samples by combining different software tools. Our sample contained web queries made by users of the Special Library of the Ministry of the Interior (hereinafter SLOMI). The process of extracting useful ideas from our sample was partially guided by statistical analysis, partially by rather intuitive and collective descriptive evaluation methods. Several rich visualisation techniques were used to stimulate creative data interpretation. The collected data on the queried persons and their areas of professional interest in our sample were implemented into a customised thesaurus and a mind map in order to extract useful ideas.
