Shoffner, Ralph M., Ed.; Cunningham, Jay L., Ed.
Contained in this report are the results of the second phase (July, 1968 - June, 1970) of the File Organization Project, directed toward the development of a facility in which the many issues relating to the organization and search of bibliographic records in on-line computer environments could be studied. The papers in this volume deal specifically with issues and problems of organizing and accessing large bibliographic files, and are entitled: (1) An analysis of the search problem in files of object descriptions; (2) The assignment of index terms; (3) Design of file structures for on-line bibliographic control systems; (4) The analysis of bibliographic structures, using indexed sequential organization; (5) First-stage model of the economic effects of incorporating a data compression system into an on-line direct-access storage and retrieval system; (6) Implementation of bibliographic record compression; (7) Specification for format translation of the Santa Cruz file; (8) CRUNCH: the Santa Cruz file translation system; (9) Prospects for automatic field recognition; and (10) Translation from ILR processing format to MARC II communications format.
