This paper provides an overview of the INEX 2009 Book Track. The main goal of the track is to evaluate approaches for supporting users in reading, searching, and navigating the full texts of digitized books. The investigation is focused around four tasks: 1) the Book Retrieval task aims at comparing traditional and book-specific retrieval approaches, 2) the Focused Book Search task evaluates focused retrieval approaches for searching books, 3) the Structure Extraction task tests automatic techniques for deriving structure from OCR and layout information, and 4) the Active Reading task aims to explore suitable user interfaces for eBooks enabling reading, annotation, review, and summary across multiple books. We report on the setup and status of the track.
