Effective Information Retrieval from the Internet discusses practical strategies which enable the advanced web user to locate information effectively and to form a precise evaluation of the accuracy of that information. Although the book provides a brief but thorough review of the technologies which are available for these purposes, most of the book concerns practical ‘future-proof’ techniques which are independent of changes in the tools available. For example, the book covers: how to retrieve salient information quickly; how to remove or compensate for bias; and tuition of novice Internet users. Importantly, the book enables readers to develop strategies which will continue to be useful despite the rapidly-evolving state of the Internet and Internet technologies - it is not about technological tricks Enables readers to be aware of and compensate for bias and errors which are ubiquitous on the Internet Provides contemporary information on the deficiencies in web skills of novice users as well as practical techniques for teaching such users

Indexing and Abstracting in Theory and Practice

This third edition of what has become a classic among textbooks in schools of library and information science (and related programs) has been thoroughly updated to reflect the evolving technological advancements in the field. Focusing on indexing of the subject matter of material, the beginning chapters review the literature and discuss various principles and practices such as exhaustivity or depth of indexing, specificity, checktags, pre- and post-coordinate indexes, and consistency and quality of indexing. Discussions on abstracting cover such concepts as the different types of abstracts, purpose of an abstract, structured versus narrative abstracts, informative versus indicative abstracts, subject slanting, modular abstracts, and writing and evaluating an abstract. Various styles of indexing used in printed publications such as Index Medicus, the Engineering Index, and Chemical Abstracts are illustrated in the text; although the author is quick to note that printed tools are used much less today in favor of their online counterparts. In the online world, indexing has even greater importance in the effort to retrieve relevant data efficiently. Related concepts such as weighted indexing, linking of terms, and relational indicators are discussed as aids to precision. The idiosyncrasies of indexing special formats such as images and sounds and the Internet, as well as the use of computer-generated or automated indexing and abstracting, are also reviewed. The author admits that the Web has become so large and complex that it is beyond the scope of any single book to explain all of its components. He suggests the use of Web-based services such as The Extreme Web Searcher's Internet Handbook News and Updates http://extremesearcher.com/news.html or Search Engine Watch http://searchenginewatch.com to keep current with new developments.

This book constitutes the joint refereed proceedings of seven international workshops held as part of OTM 2004 in Agia Napa, Cyprus in October 2004. The 73 revised papers presented together with 31 abstracts of posters from the OTM main conferences were carefully reviewed and selected from more than 150 submissions. In accordance with the 7 workshops, the papers are organized in topical sections on grid computing and its applications to data analysis; Java technologies for real-time and embedded systems; modeling inter-organizational systems; regulatory ontologies; ontologies, semantics and e-learning; PhD symposium; and interoperability.

Papers from a winter 2002 symposium describe trends in mobile commerce, enterprise and knowledge management, Internet security, agent technology, content and application architecture, Web engineering, Internet communities, algorithms, network architecture, and performance and protocol. Specific subjects discussed include intelligent Internet search applications based on VLSI associative processors, inferring traffic flow characteristics from aggregated- flow measurement, design and implementation of an unauthorized access tracing system, and adaptive behaviors of intelligent agents based on neural semantic knowledge. Other subjects include dynamic configuration of agent migration protocols for the Internet, security in mobile agent systems, remote attack detection, and multicast over satellite.

Understanding Information Retrieval Systems

Focusing on web–based systems, the chapters in this book provide an excellent starting point for developing and managing your own IR systems.

In order to be effective for their users, information retrieval (IR) systems should be adapted to the specific needs of particular environments. The huge and growing array of types of information retrieval systems in use today is on display in Understanding Information Retrieval Systems: Management, Types, and Standards, which addresses over 20 types of IR systems. These various system types, in turn, present both technical and management challenges, which are also addressed in this volume. In order to be interoperable in a networked environment, IR systems must be able to use various types of technical standards, a number of which are described in this book—often by their original developers. The book covers the full context of operational IR systems, addressing not only the systems themselves but also human user search behaviors, user-centered design, and management and policy issues. In addition to theory and practice of IR system design, the book covers Web standards and protocols, the Semantic Web, XML information retrieval, Web social mining, search engine optimization, specialized museum and library online access, records compliance and risk management, information storage technology, geographic information systems, and data transmission protocols. Emphasis is given to information systems that operate on relatively unstructured data, such as text, images, and music. The book is organized into four parts: Part I supplies a broad-level introduction to information systems and information retrieval systems Part II examines key management issues and elaborates on the decision process around likely information system solutions Part III illustrates the range of information retrieval systems in use today discussing the technical, operational, and administrative issues for each type Part IV discusses the most important organizational and technical standards needed for successful information retrieval This volume brings together authoritative articles on the different types of information systems and how to manage real-world demands such as digital asset management, network management, digital content licensing, data quality, and information system failures. It explains how to design systems to address human characteristics and considers key policy and ethical issues such as piracy and preservation. Focusing on web–based systems, the chapters in this book provide an excellent starting point for developing and managing your own IR systems.
