Annual Report of the National Science Foundation on Contract NSF-C414 Task III July 1966 through June 1967.
American Chemical Society, Columbus, OH. Chemical Abstracts Service.
This Annual Report describes in detail the work performed during the first year of Task III of Contract NSF-C414 and the present status of Task III work. The programs and achievements described constitute the first significant efforts to develop a user-oriented, cooperative program between major secondary scientific and technical information services--the Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) information system and the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) MEDLARS--in conjunction with a large user of chemical and bio-medical information, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Experimental and developmental efforts have resulted in three new computer systems being instituted to produce the NLM Output Tape, the Desktop Analysis Tools, and to determine and assign automatically terms for MEDLARS. In addition, CAS has performed 59,698 registrations. These have contributed data on 21,110 substances that were new to the Chemical Abstracts Service files. (BC)
