Books on Information Retrieval (General)

Modern Information Retrieval. R. Baeza-Yates, B. Ribeiro-Neto. Addison-Wesley, 1999. Currently the most widely used and cited.

Information Retrieval: Algorithms and Heuristics. D.A. Grossman, O. Frieder. Springer, 2004. Excellent textbook, #1 or #2 seller on Amazon.

Managing Gigabytes. I.H. Witten, A. Moffat, T.C. Bell. Morgan Kaufmann, 1999. The authority on index construction and compression.

Finding Out About. R. Belew. CAMbridge UP, 2001. More suitable for undergraduate classes than other books listed here.

Information Retrieval: A Health and Biomedical Perspective. W.R. Hersh. Springer, 2002. As the title says: a health/biomedical perspective.

TREC: Experiment and Evaluation in Information Retrieval. E.M. Voorhees, D.K. Harman. MIT Press, 2005. A survey of recent research results.

Language Modeling for Information Retrieval. W.B. Croft, J. Lafferty. Springer, 2003. Language models are of increasing importance in IR.

Readings in Information Retrieval. K. Sparck Jones, P. Willett. Morgan Kaufmann, 1997. A collection of classical IR papers.

Recommended Reading for IR Research Students. A. Moffat, J. Zobel, D. Hawking. SIGIR Forum, 39(2), 2005. Not a book, but a collection of seminal papers, more up-to-date than Sparck-Jones et al.

Information Storage and Retrieval Systems. G. Kowalski, M.T. Maybury. Springer, 2005. "... takes a system approach, discussing all aspects of an Information Retrieval System."

The Geometry of Information Retrieval. C.J. van Risjbergen. Cambridge UP, 2004. Am ambitious attempt to develop quantum mechanics as a new foundation for IR.

Introduction to Modern Information Retrieval. G.G. Chowdhury. Neal-Schuman, 2003. Intended for students of library and information studies.

Text Information Retrieval Systems. C. Meadow, B. Boyce, D. Kraft. Academic Press, 2000. Also takes a library/information science perspective. More Books

Books on Web Information Retrieval

Mining the Web: Analysis of Hypertext and Semi Structured Data. S. Chakrabarti. Morgan Kaufmann, 2002. The best introduction for web-centric IR.

Google's PageRank and beyond: The science of Search Engine Rankings. Amy N. Langville, Carl D. Meyer. Princeton University Press, 2006. More focused on the algorithms of PageRank, but also covers general web IR.

Modeling the Internet and the Web: Probabilistic Methods and Algorithms. P. Baldi, P. Frasconi, P. Smyth. Wiley, 2003. A bit terse. Recommended for those who have a good foundation in probability theory, but are new to IR.

Introduction to Information Retrieval. C.D. Manning, P. Raghavan, H. Schütze. Cambridge UP, 2007. Draft. Focuses on algorithms and mathematical foundations without neglecting practical issues in building search systems. Equal coverage of classical IR and newer topics like XML, machine learning techniques and web search engines.

Finding Out About. R. Belew's book (w/o figures and equations), see above.

Information Retrieval. C. J. van Rijsbergen. Butterworths, 1979. The classic. Almost 40 years old, but still worth reading.

Information Retrieval. T. van der Weide. 2004. Introduction to IR and hypertext.
