Do you know of any work on search interfaces for financial symbols (e.g. stocks, bonds, economic indicators)? I'm doing a literature review to help inform my design ideas.

Most the work I have found so far relates specifically to searching for content, but our users are looking for specific mappings with an industry-standard structure, e.g. "What's the ticker symbol for Coca-Cola?" (KO); "What about the Yearly Employment Rate for Bolivia?" (21867RF).
