How does keyword-in-context work?

Keyword-in-context refers to the highlighting of a search term in search results, surrounded by a few words before and after the term to provide the necessary context to allow the user to determine if that source has insight on a topic.  Keyword-in-context is critical to PIN users’ ability to send relevant queries to PIN sources.

Keyword-in-context snippets around highlighted terms in search results will show up to two snippets in the search results list (even if there are more instances of the term in the source record), and will display up to 100 words surrounding each highlighted keyword.  There is no maximum character limit.  The engine will display full sentences, wherever possible.
