Handbook of Research on Innovations in Information Retrieval, Analysis, and Management

Book Description

In a world increasingly awash in information, the field of information science has become an umbrella stretched so broadly as to threaten its own integrity. However, while traditional information science seeks to make sense of information systems against a social, cultural, and political backdrop, there exists a lack of current literature exploring how such transactions can exert force in the other direction—that is, how information systems mold the individuals who utilize them and society as a whole. The Handbook of Research on Innovations in Information Retrieval, Analysis, and Management explores new developments in the field of information and communication technologies and explores how complex information systems interact with and affect one another, woven into the fabric of an information-rich world. Touching on such topics as machine learning, research methodologies, and mobile data aggregation, this book targets an audience of researchers, developers, managers, strategic planners, and advanced-level students. This handbook contains chapters on topics including, but not limited to, customer experience management, information systems planning, cellular networking, public policy development, and knowledge governance.
