A system and computer-based method providing a dynamic information clipping service. An end-user creates a template of topics of interest via a graphical user interface and the template is transmitted to a central site for processing. At the central site, information relating to a particular base of knowledge is collected, parsed and indexed. The parsed and indexed information is stored in an information repository. The template is processed by parsing and collecting command-strings relating to the topics of interest found within the parsed template. The information repository is searched using the collected command-strings to generate query results, which are then sorted. A Hypertext Mark-up Language (HTML) page is created using the sorted query results. The page is then made available to the end-user for viewing, wherein the page represents a custom network-based newspaper.
