China-America Digital Academic Library Project (CADAL) is a collaborative project between universities and institutes in China and the USA, which aims to provide universal access to large scale digital resources and explore the ways of applying multimedia and virtual reality technologies to digital library. The distinct characteristic of the resources in CADAL is that it not only contains one million digital books of different languages, but also contains Terabyte level multimedia resources (image, video, and so on), which are utilized for education and research purposes. So, in the Portal to CADAL, both the traditional services of browsing and searching of digital books, and the services of quickly retrieving and structurally browsing of multimedia documents should be provided. In addition, the services of visual presentation of retrieved results are required too. In this paper, the underlying novel multimedia retrieval methods as well as visualization techniques, which are used in the CADAL portal, are investigated.
