    Abstract : Information Retrieval (IR) deals with finding and presenting information from a collection of documents/data that are relevant to an information need (a query) expressed by a user. Cross Language Information Retrieval (CLIR) is a subfield of IR where queries are posed in a different language than that of the document collection. READ MORE

  4. 4. Subject retrieval in web-based library catalogs

    University dissertation from University of Zagreb

    Author : Koraljka Golub; Jadranka Lasić-Lazić; [2003]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; British university libraries; Croatian university libraries; Indexing and retrieval systems; Online library catalogs; Subject access points; Subject retrieval; User interface; User search behavior; WebPACs; Library and Information Science; Biblioteks- och informationsvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis has been motivated by past research, problems and realizations that online library catalog users frequently perform subject searches – using keywords, subject headings and descriptors – and these searches have yielded unsatisfactory results. Web-based catalogs or WebPACs (Web-based Online Public Access Catalogs), belonging to the so-called third generation of online catalogs and providing a wide variety of search options, remain largely underutilized despite the continuous advancement of information retrieval systems.

  5. 5. Stylistic Experiments for Information Retrieval

    University dissertation from Stockholm University

    Author : Jussi Karlgren; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Information retrieval systems are built to handle texts as topical items: texts are tabulated by occurrence frequencies of content words in them, under the assumption that text topic is reasonably well modeled by content word occurrence. But texts have several interesting characteristics beyond topic. READ MORE
