English abstract

Discusses the concept of data mining, its applications, benefits and the standard tasks involved in the process are explained. Such pattern-seeking techniques usually performed with a wide range of related areas (viz. statistics, neural networks, genetic algorithms, machine learning, pattern recognition, knowledge-based systems, etc.) are described. Also focuses on bibliomining opportunities to be useful to information retrieval, semantic analysis of unstructured texts, web-usage mining and to make proactive as well as knowledge-driven decision across library services Suggests use of data mining in combination with other techniques of evaluation, exploiting large data warehouses by skilled specialists, and advises for ethical uses without privacy invasion.
