A System Study of Abstracting and Indexing in the United States.
System Development Corp., Falls Church, VA.
This report contains the findings of a survey of selected abstracting and indexing organizations in the United States. It considers problems, requirements and technical and organizational alternatives pertinent to the development of a document representation subsystem in the context of a national document handling system for science and technology. It presents recommendations for immediate actions by the Federal Government. Five appendices review the assumptions and requirements already developed by the Committee on Scientific and Technical Information (COSATI) for a national document handling system; previous system studies; user studies; advanced technology; and cooperation among abstracting and indexing organizations.
