Description
Summary:"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-cast 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."--Jacket.
