It is recognized that today's information professionals need to concentrate their efforts on learning the techniques of computerized information retrieval. However, it is this book's contention that it also benefits them to learn in depth the theory, techniques and tools that constitute the traditional approaches to the organization and processing of information.
The text is one of the first to blend together the traditional and the new, and to give the student of information studies a comprehensive view of information retrieval. Unique in its scope, it covers the whole spectrum of information storage and retrieval.
Illustrated with many examples and comprehensively referenced for an international audience, this is a textbook for students of library and information studies undertaking courses in information retrieval, information organization, information use and knowledge-based systems at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. It is also an aid for information practitioners wishing to brush up on their skills and keep up to date with the latest techniques.

Review:

About previous editions: Students and their teachers who need a practical, wide-ranging introductory survey of information retrieval will find it in this book. --Program

Chowdhury's new text succeeds admirably in its aim to bring together traditional theory of classification, cataloguing and subject indexing as well as new, more IT-oriented, principles, models and techniques of information retrieval. --Australian Library Journal

My initial reaction to this book was to applaud the author: the scope is impressive. --Education for Information
