"Modern Information Retrieval" by Ricardo Baeza-Yates and Berthier
Ribeiro-Neto is pretty good too.  Covers much more than just indexing (eg.
user interfaces, languages, evaluation of effectiveness, distributed IR,
Digital Libraries etc).

If you are a member of the ACM there is lots of IR stuff in their digital
library.  Also the New Zealand Digital Library (www.nzdl.org) has some
good links on it (the site can be quite slow at times)

I've normally got a window open on #zope most of the day (GMT), my nick is
HammerToe (long story, that is not as interesting or painful as it
sounds, and involves neither a hammer nor a toe).  You might need to /msg
me or beep me to get my attention :)
