Sadly Avi Rappoport is not updating her SearchTools web site due to professional commitments. Intranet Focus Ltd has therefore added a new Enterprise Search section to our web site that will not have the breadth of the Search Tools web site but will hopefully provide some useful resources to the enterprise search community. On the site you will find
- A list of 70 search vendors and associated companies
- A list of books and major reports on information retrieval and enterprise search
- A list of blogs, mainly by search vendors, on enterprise search topics
Keeping these lists up to date is always a challenge but if we have missed any resource in these listings do please let us know. We also have over 250 research papers and other reports on enterprise search and information retrieval so if you are looking for information on a particular topic we may well be able to help you. In total we have over 1000 items on a range of intranet and information management topics.
I am a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) which has a superb digital library of over 1 million items, and we run profiles across this resource every week to identify papers to add to our collection. We also keep a check on the major research periodicals such as Information Retrieval, Information Processing and Management, International Journal of Information Retrieval Research, Information Research and the Journal of Information Science, amongst others.
If you have suggestions for resources we should add to this section of our site please let me know.
