Different models have been proposed to build systems that adapt to the user reducing the complexity in the information browsing process, saving user time and offering personalised interfaces. The work described in this paper, named \wz, is an example of adaptive system specially built for accessing digital libraries. A fuzzy decision mechanism is used to implement the adaptation of both the user interface and the information searching process. This paper describes how this system has been designed and implemented, focusing on its fuzzy-based components. Finally, it also briefly discusses the advantages of using fuzzy logic to implement adaptability of the user interface and the searching process.
