Rez. in: iwp 62(2011) H.8, S.398-400 (A.R. Brellochs): " ... An der faktisch gegebenen Positionierung als Textbuch für Information Retrieval, einigen Themenfeldern der Informationsvermittlung und des Bibliothekswesens ist zwar grundsätzlich nichts auszusetzen. Leider führt aber die Vielzahl der behandelten Themen dazu, dass trotz des Umfangs von gut 500 Seiten manche für das IR wichtige Themen nur sehr knapp abgehandelt wurden. Diese thematische Überbreite macht den Band leider als generelle Einführung für Leser ohne fachlichen Hintergrund in Informations- oder Bibliothekswissenschaft ungeeignet, denn für diese ist ein großer Teil des Buches nicht ausreichend verständlich.
In die Irre führt den unbedarften Leser auf jeden Fall der im Titel postulierte Anspruch, eine Einführung in Information Retrieval zu leisten. Gegenüber dem Leser wäre es ehrlicher, den Titel des Buches entsprechend thematisch zu erweitern, oder aber sich tatsächlich auf das angegebene Gebiet zu konzentrieren. Eine solche Verschlankung um nicht eigentlich für das Verständnis der IR-Konzepte notwendige Materialien täte dem Titel sicher sehr gut und würde auch dessen weitere Verbreitung außerhalb des Informationswesens ermöglichen. Die für die aktuelle Auflage durchgeführte Aktualisierung und Erweiterung bleibt leider an verschiedenen Stellen etwas an der Oberfläche. Man muss deshalb konstatieren, dass die Stärke des Bandes eher in der thematischen Breite liegt, als darin, wirklich einen erschöpfenden Einblick in das Information Retrieval zu geben. Für eine grundlegende Einführung in IR lässt Chowdhury zwar inhaltlich nur wenig vermissen, doch die Kohärenz der Darstellung und die didaktische Aufbereitung des Stoffes sind auf jeden Fall ausbaufähig, um den Ansprüchen an ein Lehrbuch gerecht werden zu können, das auch im Selbststudium durchgearbeitet werden kann. Diese Schwäche ist allerdings auch der Informationswissenschaft selbst anzulasten, die (im Gegensatz etwa zur Informatik) bisher keine allgemein anerkannte Fachdidaktik hervor gebracht hat. Trotz der besprochenen Desiderate ist der Titel bereits jetzt eine empfehlenswerte Ergänzung zu Vorlesungen in den behandelten Gebieten, wenn man einen fachlichen Hintergrund in Bibliotheksoder Informationswissenschaft voraussetzt."
