Review:

"Innovations in Information Retrieval provides interesting material on a fast changing dynamic topic with lots of insight by the contributing authors...there are certainly many leads to follow for further research opportunities in all of the topics covered, should one feel inclined to do so." --Library Management

"...the book makes the case for IR being an expansive area of study, and the academy-centred magpie approach is ideally suited to its defined target audience - master's-level students in ILS wanting information and inspiration. The volume, in different ways, offers both." --International Society for Knowledge Organization, U.K.

"...a welcome addition to the existing literature in the field of information retrieval. This is a very stimulating and thought provoking book which reads easily. Furthermore, it is a book that scholars, researchers or practitioners interested in information retrieval should not be without." --The Electronic Library
