With the advent of Arpanet the potential capabilities of information sharing was very well recognized and gradually the world is gifted with the ocean of Information I. e. the Internet . There is continuous inflow of information , the information may be of any kind be it texts, audio, images or it may be the audio visual information. Thus, the users are flooded with information. Due to this flooding, it is also important to see that right information may be provided to the right person at right time or 3R's, but many a times it does not happen. This paper studies various approaches by noted researchers, academician and their contributions to the multimedia retrieval systems. This paper also tries to bring out some pros and cons of the different approaches.
