Information Retrieval Surveys

These surveys typically address a focused topic in the broad area of information retrieval. I have listed here surveys on topics that are clearly central to information retrieval; additional surveys on related topics can be found on the Web site of each series. Links to freely available versions are provided when available; others are available through Research Port at the University of Maryland Libraries.

Longer Surveys

These surveys are the length of short books, typically about 100 pages.
