ACM Press, 1999 - Computers - 513 pages
1 Review
An information-retrieval text written from a computer-science perspective rather than a user-centered perspective. The first nine chapters address issues including modeling, retrieval evaluation, query languages and options, text and multimedia languages, text operations, and indexing and searching. Six remaining chapters, written by contributing researchers, address special current issues such as parallel and distributed IR and digital libraries.

I recommend this book as the first book to read for beginners. It is comprehensive, very well organized, and very practical.
The only problem with this book is being very old nowadays.
