Overview

Intelligent information Retrieval comprehensively surveys scientific information retrieval, which is characterized by growing convergence of information expressed in varying complementary forms of data - textual, numerical, image, and graphics; by the fundamental transformation which the scientific library is currently being subjected to; and by computer networking which as become an essential element of the research fabric. Intelligent Information Retrieval addresses enabling technologies, so-called 'wide area network resource discovery tools', and the state of the art in astronomy and other sciences. This work is essential reading for astronomers, scientists in related disciplines, and all those involved in information storage and retrieval.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Surveys scientific information retrieval as it is evolving into a convergence of textual, numerical, image, graphical, and other data forms, any combination of which not only can be used in a single paper, but all of which may have to be accessed, perhaps from several different databases or archives, in order to complete a particular study. Covers the enabling technologies, wide area network resource discovery tools, and the state of the art in astronomy and related sciences. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
