An Interactive Document Retrieval System.
Carroll, D.E.; And Others
The document retrieval system at Coordinated Science Laboratory is implemented on a Control Data 1604 computer system. Recorded information from each source article includes 1) conventional bibliographic data such as authorship, author affiliation, title, year of publication, etc., 2) detailed bibliographic data from each of the cited references, and 3) citations in context. The source articles are selected from the "IEEE Transactions on Computers", "Journal of the Association for Computing Machinery", and "Documentation". The searches are conducted in interactive manner through REQUEST system, which is a man-machine interface language. The searches are conducted in another language called Information Search Language (ISL), which is a string-possessing language capable of searching variable-length information strings. Section Two of this report gives a brief description of the data base. Section Three describes the REQUEST system from a systems point of view. Section Four describes the Information Search Language.
