Urbandoc: A Bibliographic Information System. Demonstration Report.
City Univ. of New York, NY. Graduate School and Univ. Center.
Project URBANDOC reports on four years of activity as an Urban Renewal Demonstration Project at the City University of New York. The Project aims toward improvement of bibliographic services in urban affairs. URBANDOC is one of the first of the library-information sciences systems to deal specifically with the social sciences. The final report consists of three volumes: the "Demonstration Report," the "General Manual" (Technical Supplement I) (see LI 002 881), and the "Operations Manual" (Technical Supplement 2) (see LI 002 882). The "Demonstration Report" provides an over-all view of the objectives, features, accomplishments, and conclusions and recommendations of the Project. Appendices contain the Prototype Retrieval Reports, and the Prototype Input Index. (Author/MM)
