Information Retrieval :[ BE - IT | Sem 8 ] Books Download

         Information retrieval (IR) is an important an easy to learn subject introduced in the 8th semester of Information Technology Engineering of Pune University.The objective of the subject is to  deal with IR representation, storage, organization  and access to information items. The subject covers the basics and important aspects associated with Information Retrieval. It covers the basics, need of retrieval, different retrieval algorithm, taxonomy and ontology,IR models and languages etc. The subject is interesting, scoring as well as easy to learn.

 The syllabus for Information Retrieval is as follows: (according to 2008 pattern)

Unit I:
