Document Retrieval in a Highway Research Library.
Sherman, George B.; Anderson, Robert A.
A document storage and retrieval system for the library of the Materials and Research Department of the California Division of Highways is described. The system was designed and installed as part of a research project whose objectives were to evaluate a concept-coordinated document retrieval and storage system for internally and externally produced documents, utilizing the work of the Highway Research Information Service of the Highway Research Board. The HRIS list of authorized terms was adopted for indexing, and an optical coincidence retrieval method was installed. Input, storage, searching and output operations are described. It is concluded that the system is feasible and economical in this application. (USGRDR/JW)
