Abstract

This study presents an interpretation of the evolution of the events in the information retrieval area. Focusing mainly on the last twenty years, the study pays particular attention to the system which needs to be envisaged and designed to support the end user in accessing relevant and interesting information. The end user can be considered the guide of the researcher, prompting him to conceive and invent solutions of real use for the user himself

Keywords
