SELECTIVE DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION (SDI). VOLUME I, PILOT TEST AT U.S. ARMY NATICK LABORATORIES. FINAL REPORT. ARMY TECHNICAL LIBRARY IMPROVEMENT STUDIES (ATLIS), REPORT NO. 15.
BIVONA, WILLIAM A.
THIS VOLUME PRESENTS THE RESULTS OF A NINE-MONTH TEST OF A PROTOTYPE SELECTIVE DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION (SDI) SYSTEM DEVELOPED FOR THE ARMY TECHNICAL LIBRARIES. DURING THE PILOT TEST ONE THOUSAND DOCUMENTS WERE CATALOGED, INDEXED, AND DISSEMINATED TO TWENTY-FIVE SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL PERSONNEL. MATCHING OF THE INTEREST PROFILES OF THESE PERSONNEL WITH THE ANALYSIS (SUBJECT AND NON-SUBJECT) OF THE DOCUMENTS BY COMPUTER IS DONE BY ONE OF THREE STRATEGIES--PERCENTAGE-OF-MATCHING-TERMS, BOOLEAN, AND WEIGHTED. THE RESULT IS TWO SETS OF TABULATING CARDS, WHICH ARE USED TO PREPARE COPIES OF ABSTRACTS OF THE SELECTED DOCUMENTS ON ANOTHER SET OF TABULATING CARDS AND COLLATE THESE ABSTRACTS BY PROFILE FOR DISSEMINATION. DURING THE COURSE OF THE PILOT STUDY, STATISTICS WERE ACCUMULATED ON OPERATING COSTS AND VARIOUS PARAMETERS AFFECTING THE RELEVANCY OF DISSEMINATED INFORMATION. VOLUME 2 (LI 000 346) IS A MANUAL AND SET OF GUIDELINES FOR IMPLEMENTING THIS STUDY. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE AS AD-654-997 FROM THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR FEDERAL SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION, SPRINGFIELD, VIRGINIA 22151, $3.00 FOR HARD COPY, $0.65 FOR MICROFICHE, 97 PAGES.
