This site is a collection of online resources for research in the field of information retrieval and information extraction from the Web. 

These pages contain materials that are related to the state of the art IR and IE techniques used for and on the Web. Such techniques use, as well as traditional techniques, hypertext structure and meta-data, the structure and nature of the Web, observed human behaviour on the Web, other search engines, and more.

I would appreciate any comments, suggestions, additions and links you might have. I hope this site helps create an awareness of the special and different nature of Web IR & IE. Such an awareness might also help in defining the differences and similarities between the Web and other non-hypertext texts.
