The timely provision of relevantinformation with minimal noise is critical to modern society andthis is what information retrieval (IR) is all about. It is adynamic subject, with current changes driven by the expansion ofthe World Wide Web, the advent of modern and inexpensive graphicaluser interfaces and the development of reliable and low-cost massstorage devices.
Modern Information Retrieval discusses all thesechanges in great detail and can be used for a first course on IR aswell as graduate courses on the topic. The book comprises twoportions which complement and balance each other. The core portionincludes nine chapters authored or co-authored by the designers ofthe book. The second portion, which is fully integrated with thefirst, is formed by six state-of-the-art chapters written byleading researchers in their fields.
From IR models to indexingtext, from IR visual tools and interfaces to the Web, from IR.multimedia to digital libraries, the book provides both breadth ofcoverage and richness of detail. It is our hope that, given the nowclear relevance and significance of information retrieval to modernsociety.
the book will contribute to further disseminate the studyof the discipline at information science, computer science, andlibrary science departments throughout the world.
