Books

This is a list of some of the books published since 2006 on enterprise search, information retrieval and text mining.  It was revised in December 2016. Suggestions for additional titles would be appreciated.

The eight titles in red font are those which in my opinion represent the core library for a search team to have access to.

Among publishers with a substantial commitment to books on information retrieval, enterprise search and related topics are Morgan and Claypool, Now Publishing, O’Reilly and Springer. Only a selection of the books that may have a relevance to enterprise search are included in this list.
