Documents Flashcards Grammar checker. Meadow, published by Academic Press, Inc. The book is available at http: The knowledge, experience and background in information systems are preferred. The information retrieval and storage focuses on the latter, the second level. The aim of this course is to prepare students as information retrieval system analysts and designers.

To outline basic terminology and components in information storage and retrieval systems To compare and contrast information retrieval models and internal mechanisms such as Boolean, Probability, and Vector Space Models To outline the structure of queries and documents To articulate fundamental functions used in information retrieval such as automatic indexing, abstracting, and clustering To critically evaluate information retrieval system effectiveness and improvement techniques To understand the unique features of Internet-based information retrieval To describe current trends in information retrieval such as information visualization.
