Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


To address the inefficient use of information retrieval (IR) systems such as search engines and library catalogues, we present a unified framework of strategies for information retrieval. This framework (1) contains a small set of general and efficient information retrieval strategies that are useful across many IR systems, and (2) can be used to identify key missing functionality in IR systems, and to design training approaches that lead to the efficient retrieval of information.
