Information Retrieval Interaction

Information Retrieval Interaction
by Peter Ingwersen

Publisher: Taylor Graham Publishing 2002
ISBN/ASIN: 0947568549
Number of pages: 256

Information Retrieval Interaction is defined as the interactive communication processes that occur during the retrieval of information by involving all the major participants in information retrieval (IR), i.e. the user, the intermediary, and the IR system. The aims of the book are to establish a unifying scientific approach to IR – a synthesis based on the concept of IR interaction and the Cognitive Viewpoint; to present research and developments in the field of information retrieval based on a new categorisation; and to generate a consolidated framework of functional requirements for intermediary analysis and design – the Mediator Model.
