Era three saw a number of case studies of limited generalisability and a general recognition that the best search performance can be achieved by the parallel use of the two types of indexing languages.

The emphasis in Era four has been on the development of end-user-based systems, including online public access catalogues and databases on by:   His work on evaluation--of libraries, of information retrieval systems and information systems more generally, of indexing and abstracting structures, of indexes and journals, of online searching, of users and their needs, of training programs, of library collections and information services, of evaluation as a management tool--is truly monumental.

The second Cranfield experiment examined variations in indexing and vocabulary control and the test collection was later used by other experimenters.

Introduction Information retrieval, as usually understood, is performed by retrospective document search systems, like MEDLARS [1] or current awareness systems, like SDi [2].Cited by: 3.

A performance study of a few popular search engines is conducted including AlltheWeb, Google, Microsoft Search Engine, and Yahoo!. The quality of the search results is examined manually by marking relevant pages returned from the search engines in response to a set of randomly chosen queries and computing the RankPower.

In manual indexing systems this choice is easily made by the automatic indexing it is necessary to define what punctuation should be used as what "words" to index.

Dr. T a u b e ' s criticism of the "relevance-recall mathematics" introduced by the Aslib-Cranfield studies and t a k e n over by the AI)L writers is misplaced, because it, is based on a confusion on his p a r t between two different uses of the term "relevance.".
