Query Language and Search Strategy for Bibliographic Data Base Utilization.
Sixth in a series of eight reports of a research study for the National Agricultural Library (NAL) on the effective utilization of bibliographic data bases in machine-readable form, this report deals with the query language, search strategy and related considerations for a particular information storage and retrieval system. One section of the report deals with various storage considerations, such as data base organization and maintenance. While search software and query languages would appear to be interdependent, there must be language translation software to process the query language and interface with the search software. Another section of the report considers search strategy and is oriented toward system performance considerations; a section dealing with query languages is concerned with such human factors as user preferences and convenience.
