This paper reports an implementation of an intelligent mining approach from veterinary clinical records and an external source of information. The system retrieves information from a local veterinary clinical database and then complements this information with related records from an external source, OAIster. It utilizes text-mining, web service technologies and domain knowledge, in order to extract keywords, to retrieve related records from an external source, and to filter the extracted keywords list. This study meets a practical challenge encountered at the School of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences at Murdoch University. The results indicate that the system can be used to increase the limited knowledge within a local source by complementing it with related records from an external source. Moreover, the system also reduces information overload by only retrieving a set of related information from an external source. Finally, domain knowledge can be used to filter the extracted keywords, in this case, selected medical keywords from the extracted keyword list.
