Problem statement. We justify the possibility of full-text search services application in both universal and specialized (in terms of resource base) digital libraries for the extraction and analysis of the context knowledge in the humanities. The architecture and services of virtual information and resource center for extracting knowledge from the humanitarian texts generated by «Humanitariana» project are described. The functional integration of the resources and services for a full-text search in a distributed decentralized environment, organized in the Internet / Intranet architecture under the control of the client (user) browser accessing a variety of independent servers. An algorithm for a distributed full-text query implementation is described.

Methods. Method of combining requency-ranked and paragraph-oriented full-text queries is used: the first are used for the preliminary analysis of the subject area or a combination product (explication of "vertical" context, or macro context), the second - for the explication of "horizontal" context, or micro context within copyright paragraph. The results of the frequency-ranked queries are used to compile paragraph-oriented queries.

Results. The results of textual research are shown on the topics "The question of fact in Russian philosophy", "The question of loneliness in Russian philosophy and culture". About 50 pieces of context knowledge on the total resource base of about 2,500 full-text resources have been explicated and briefly described to their further expert investigating.

Practical significance. The proposed technology (advanced full-text searching services in a distributed information environment) can be used for the information support of humanitarian studies and education in the humanities, for functional integration of resources and services of various organizations, for carrying out interdisciplinary research. 

Keywords: full-text searching, contextual knowledge explication, "horizontal" context, "vertical" context, functional integration of resources, decentralized distributed environment, metasearch engine
