The DelaunayMM system supports an interactive, customizable interface for querying multimedia distributed databases, such as digital libraries. Through this interface, users select virtual document styles that cater the display of query results to their needs, while also offering transparent preand post-query refinement and querying. DelaunayMM's virtual documents preserve context by maintaining a single customizable interface for result viewing. The advanced transparent query features rely on mediation to provide adept access to information. In this paper, we present the framework for DelaunayMM, its architecture, the user interface, and results of the first usability study
