THE COLUMBIA-HARVAD-YALE MEDICAL LIBRARIES COMPUTERIZATION PROJECT, A REVIEW WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE PHASE I OF THE PROJECT.
BREGZIS, RITVARS
THE PRINCIPAL GOAL OF THE PROJECT IS THE ACTIVATION OF A REAL- TIME MEDICAL LITERATURE SYSTEM, WITH THE CONCEPT FOR THE PROJECT BASED ON RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS AND AN APPRAISAL OF EXPECTED FUTURE INFORMATION SYSTEMS. DURING THE FIRST PHASE, A DATA FILE HAS BEEN CREATED WHICH, WITH SOME ADJUSTMENTS, CAN BE EMPLOYED FOR TIME-SHARED INTERACTIVE BIBLIOGRAPHIC INFORMATION RETRIEVAL OPERATIONS. THE WORK OF THE PROJECT HAS ALSO CREATED STAFF CAPABLE OF IMPLEMENTING MORE COMPLEX TASKS AND HAS DEMONSTRATED THE PRACTICABILITY OF MECHANIZED PRODUCTION OF CATALOG CARDS AS A BY- PRODUCT. IN VIEW OF THESE ATTAINMENTS, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THIS PROJECT BE CONTINUED AND THAT THE COMPILED DATA FILE BE USED FOR THE OPERATION, UNDER A SINGLE AUTHORITY, OF A PILOT SYSTEM FEATURING INTERACTIVE TIME-SHARED OPERATIONS INTENDED TO PROVIDE A MODEST SERVICE OF DESCRIPTIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY AND TO ACCOMMODATE RESEARCH AND EXPERIMENTATION IN MORE COMPLEX AREAS, SUCH AS SUBJECT ORIENTED BIBLIOGRAPHICAL CONTROL. THE DOCUMENT ALSO INCLUDES PAPERS BY FREDERICK G. KILGOUR ON BASIC SYSTEMS ASSUMPTIONS OF THE PROJECT (PRESENTED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA INSTITUTE ON INFORMATION RETRIEVAL, NOVEMBER, 1965) AND ON COMPUTER APPLICATIONS IN BIOMEDICAL LIBRARIES (GIVEN AT THE IBM SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING SYMPOSIUM, MAY, 1965), A REPORT OF THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON INPUT PROCEDURES FOR THE PROJECT, THE PROJECT'S COMPUTER PROGRAM, AND DIRECTIONS FOR USING THE CATALOGING WORKSHEET. A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF 26 ITEMS IS APPENDED. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE AS PB-174-524 FROM THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR FEDERAL SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION, SPRINGFIELD, VIRGINIA 22151, $3.00 FOR HARD COPY, $0.65 FOR MICROFICHE. (AUTHOR/JB)
