This module provides an overview of information  retrieval (IR), also known as search, applied to
knowledge‐based resources in the biomedical and health domain. The HIBB begins with definitions
of key terms in the field. This is followed by a description of the components of IR systems. The
remainder of the HIBB describe the types and provides examples of knowledge‐based resources,
including bibliographic, full‐text, annotated, and aggregated resources.
