Malaysia is rich in multilingual and multicultural heritage. With the advent of computing power we must treasure this richness to allow not only Malaysians to access this information widely. Researchers in information retrieval (IR) face many challenges in addressing issues ranging from theory to user demands in the application of computers to the acquisition of test collections, organisation, storage, search, retrieval, and distribution of information. Firstly, we must first explore the challenges faced in the acquisition organisation, and storage of test collections pertaining to multilingual and multicultural heritage. The terrain of this exploration is mainly on Malay heritage comprising Malay translated Al-Quran documents, present-Malay and Old-Malay dictionaries, and songket motifs. A specific focus is also given to a test collection on mathematical terms. Secondly, we must identify effective and efficient conflation algorithms to search and retrieve information from the test collections. Finally, relevant matching and ranking procedure is carried out to display or distribute the information. The exploration in these contexts has uncovered several new algorithms. They are successfully implemented in the search engines Enjin Carian Al-Quran and Songket Motifs Retrieval System 1.0 as well as online assessment system on Mathematic called Electronic Mathematical Assessment System (EMAS).
