WHAT IS THE IRLIB?
WHAT IS THE IRLIB?
The Information Retrieval Library is a specialized full-text searchable digital library. The goals of the project are three-fold:
- to preserve/access IR related out-of-print research resources
- to research Digital Library technologies and user interface issues
- 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)
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!
