Information retrieval (IR) functions serve a critical role in many digital library systems. There are numerous mature IR algorithms that have been implemented and it will be a waste of resources and time to re-implement them.

Concept extraction is an important area in traditional IR. We demonstrated that it can be… CONTINUE READING
