This study provides a state of the art review of the application of ANN technology to information retrieval (IR) with particular emphasis on bibliographic information in the context of libraries and it assesses the quality of ANN-based approaches to IR. Despite the theoretical and practical evidence that ANNs are good tools for pattern recognition tasks, it was still an open question whether they were appropriate tools within the specific domain of bibliographic information retrieval. Apart from some minor studies, no real attempt has been made to integrate an ANN as a main component of bibliographical information retrieval systems on an on-line public access catalogue (OPAC).
