WHAT IS THE IRLIB?
The Information Retrieval Library is a specialized full-text searchable digital library. The goals of the project are three-fold:
  1. to preserve/access IR related out-of-print research resources
  2. to research Digital Library technologies and user interface issues
  3. to collect queries on-line from an IR literate community

The IRLIB currently contains a sampling of publications and reports from within the field of information retrieval (IR). Current searchable contents include:
  • Scientific Report No. ISR-10
    containing the full PhD Thesis of Joseph John Rocchio, Jr.
  • Scientific Report No. ISR-11
    containing early reports from the SMART project on the SMART system operation at Harvard, a concordance program, dictionary construction, design criteria for a new SMART system at Cornell, relevance feedback, clustering, automatic hierarchy generation
  • Scientific Report No. IRS-13
    containing reports on new evaluations and evaluation methods being done at Cornell
  • Information Retrieval Experiment
    book published in 1981 by Karen Sparck Jones that gives an overview of information retrieval experiments and experimental techniques, and includes chapters by multiple contributors in the field
  • NIST Special Publication 500-215: The Second Text REtrieval Conference (TREC-2)
    containing papers and results of the second TREC conference
  • NIST Special Publication 500-207: The First Text REtrieval Conference (TREC-1)
    containing papers and results for the first TREC conference
  • NIST Monograph 91: Automatic Indexing: A State of the Art Report
    containing a survey of the literature on automatic indexing (182 pages plus an extensive bibliography)
  • WHAT'S NEW?
    All interfaces were redesigned to incorporate a new look and feel! Also, a new feature was added to allow not only full-text search of individual publications, but full-text search of the collection as a whole. The IRLIB has added two more volumes of IR information...the CRANFIELD reports!
