General Information Processing System: The GIPSY/ERIC Abstract Retrieval System.
Kowitz, Gerald T.; And Others
The General Information Processing System (GIPSY) of the Merrick Computing Center is a user dominated system. It can be used to manipulate and retrieve both numeric and alphabetic material. One of its most interesting uses is in the selection and retrieval of records and documents or of selected entries from records and documents. It has been used for almost two years with the items in the "Research in Education" file, and now also includes the "Current Index to Journals in Education" file. GIPSY does not require extensive or detailed programming, and is capable of responding to the user as he asks a sequence of questions. The report includes: two sample searches, terminal printouts, and terminal displays. (MF)
