This report describes the participation of MediaLab BV in the CLEF-2003 evaluations. This year we participated in the monolingual Dutch task, experimenting with a keyword disambiguation tool. MediaLab developed this tool to exploit human assigned keywords in the search engine in a better way than just blind searching with the keywords themselves. Although this tool was not planned to be used for CLEF-like applications it was fun to check if it could help boosting the search quality.
