This expansive collection reviews the history of Web log analysis and examines new trends including the issues of privacy, social interaction and community building. Over 20 research contributions from international experts comprehensively cover the latest user-behavior analytic and log analysis methodologies, and consider new research directions and novel applications. An essential holding for library reference collections, this Handbook of Research will benefit academics, researchers, and students in a variety of fields, as well as technology professionals interested in the opportunities and challenges presented by the massive collection of Web usage data.
