This is a rigorous and complete textbook for a first course on information retrieval from the computer science (as opposed to a user-centred) perspective. The advent of the Internet and the enormous increase in volume of electronically stored information generally has led to substantial work on IR from the computer science perspective - this book provides an up-to-date student oriented treatment of the subject.
Information Retrieval/Database Management
Modern Information Retrieval
Ricardo Baeza-Yates and Berthier Ribeiro-Neto
We live in the information age, where swift access to relevant information in whatever form or medium can dictate the success or failure of businesses or individuals. The timely provision of relevant information with minimal ‘noise' is critical to modern society and this is what information retrieval (IR) is all about. It is a dynamic subject, with current changes driven by the expansion of the World Wide Web, the advent of modern and inexpensive graphical user interfaces and the development of reliable and low-cost mass storage devices. Modern Information Retrieval discusses all these changes in great detail and can be used for a first course on IR as well as graduate courses on the topic.
The organization of the book, which includes a comprehensive glossary, allows the reader to either obtain a broad overview or detailed knowledge of all the key topics in modern IR. The heart of the book is the nine chapters written by Baeza-Yates and Ribeiro-Neto, two leading exponents in the field. For those wishing to delve deeper into key areas there are further state-of-the-art chapters on specialized topics, fully integrated and using the same notation and terminology, written by leading researchers:
· Parallel and Distributed IR - algorithms and architectures (Eric Brown)
· User Interfaces and Visualization - the main interface paradigms for query formation and visualization of results (Marti A. Hearst)
· Multimedia IR: Models and Languages - including MULTOS and SQL3 (Elisa Bertino, Barbara Catania and Elena Ferrari)
· Multimedia IR: Indexing and Searching - R-trees and GEMINI and QBIC (Christos Faloutsos)
· Libraries and Bibliographical Systems - online systems and public access catalogs (Edie M. Rasmussen)
· Digital Libraries - the main challenges for effective deployment (Edward A Fox and Ohm Sornil)
In addition, the book contains several chapters on
· Text IR - all the main IR models, query operations, text operations, indexing and searching (three of them co-authored with Gonzalo Navarro or Nivio Ziviani)
· The Web - challenges, measures and models, search engines, directories, query languages, metasearches and trends
Modern Information Retrieval will prove invaluable to students in Computer Science, Information Science and Library Science departments, as well as to programmers and analysts working with products related to the Web, intranets, document database systems and digital libraries.

Derzeit tritt ein Problem beim Filtern der Rezensionen auf. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.
Darüberhinaus beinhaltet das Buch Kapitel über Textoperationen, User Interfaces und Visualisierung, paralleles und verteiltes IR, Bibliotheken (2) und Multimedia IR (2).
Die Autoren schaffen es, auf relativ wenigen Seiten viel grundlegendes Wissen zu vermitteln und die ca. 850 Literaturverweise ermöglichen es, schnell und einfach weiterführende Texte oder Bücher zu speziellen Themen zu finden.
Eine lohnenswerte Anschaffung.
Alles in allem ist dieses Buch aber die Pflichtlektüre für Information Retrieval, zusammen mit dem viel viel älteren Buch "Information Retrieval 2nd" von C. J. van Rijsbergen aus dem Jahr 1979.
4 Sterne statt 5 gibts weils halt doch schon recht alt ist (verglichen mit den rasanten Entwicklungen von IR in den letzten Jahren) und das Buch leider nicht voll und ganz als Zusammenfassunge "globaler" Entwicklungen gesehen werden kann.

Chapter one just acts as a guide to the rest of the book. The book is basically divided into four parts: text IR, human-computer interfacing for IR, multimedia IR, and applications of IR. The part on text IR is best for beginners trying to learn the overall subject of IR, and consists of chapters 2 through 9. Chapter 2 is a long and important chapter that introduces fundamental concepts in IR and lays foundations for later chapters. Models for "ranking" documents based on queries are presented, including the boolean, vector, probabilistic, and fuzzy models. Chapter 3 is far less technical than chapter 2 and focuses on evaluation of IR models. Chapter 4 is an introduction to query languages, which are necessary for the elegant presentation of complex queries. Chapter 5 deals with query operations, which is the transformation of queries from simple keywords into weighted sets of terms and also includes user feedback. As in previous chapters, there is quite a bit of mathematics involved. Chapter 6 is devoted to text languages such as HTML and SGML since the user might refer to the structure of a document in his/her query, and that structure must be defined somewhere. Chapter 7 is about operations on documents themselves for the purpose of simplifying them for quick search. Thus, it is important as a time saver to eliminate common words such as "the" and also to reduce words to their grammatical roots. The potentially large size of document collections requires special indexing techniques for efficient retrieval. This is the subject of Chapter 8. Query processing can be further accelerated by using the parallel and distributed IR techniques discussed in Chapter 9, which concludes the book's discussion of text IR.
Chapter 10 is a stand-alone chapter on HCI for IR that discusses the design of user interfaces that assist the user in forming a query and current approaches for visualization of large data sets.
Multimedia IR is discussed in chapters 11 and 12. Models and query languages for office and medical information systems are discussed in Chapter 11. Efficient indexing and searching of multimedia objects is discussed in Chapter 12.
The final three chapters of the book are about the applications of IR. There is a chapter each about searching the web, bibliographic systems, and digital libraries.
The chapter on text languages is starting to show its age, as are the chapters on IR applications at the end of the book. The chapters on algorithms, and particularly the algorithmic portions of the chapters on text IR cause this book to remain a worthwhile read. There is quite a bit of mathematics used in this book, and probability theory in particular. Thus, the reader should already be familiar with probability theory and the basics of pattern recognition to get the most from this book.
They also give fair warning when they are only covering the outline of subject matter (which is rare), and they give extensive footnotes for anyone who needs to go deeper. The writing is always clear; the auithors never engage in the type of handwaving that other authors use to get past material you have the impression they themselves don't fully grasp.
If you need to implement search for a database and don't know where to start or what might be involved, this is the book for you. If you need to implement the GUI for search results and are wondering what the state of the art is and what issues are involved, then this is the book for you. If you need a well-structured framework to help you understand how internet search engines work, then this is the book for you. If you want to press the research forward on any of these topics and you are not already fluent in the literature, then this is the book for you.
The book structure consists of a Preface, Acknowledgements, Biographies, fifteen chapters, Appendix, Glossary, References and Index. The first part of the book is authored or co-authored and addresses query and text operations, retrieval and indexing. The second part consists of special topics authored by leading researchers in their fields. This part focuses on architecture, multimedia IR, bibliographical systems and digital libraries.
The Glossary section of this book consists of 18 pages and defines important technical terms used in IR. The References section consists of 45 pages of significant IR work. The Index section consists of 13 pages, which enhances the book usability. Each chapter ends with a Trends and Research Issues and a Bibliographic Discussion section.
The best features of the book are its cohesive presentation and organization. The use of a common nomenclature and notation helps students and readers to assimilate key concepts and with "connecting the dots" across chapters. The text is reinforced by a mirrored Web site with several resources, errata page and teaching material. In Chapter 1, the authors even "go the extra mile" with teachers and suggest how chapters could be used with different undergraduate and graduate courses. All this makes the book a great educational resource for students and teachers.
This book is recommended for computer science courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. It is also recommended for technical libraries and as a primary reference for IR practitioners.
