This document is one of a series describing the background, functions, and utilization of the Regional Information System (RIS), developed by the Michigan-Ohio Regional Educational Laboratory (MOREL).

The handbook is also designed to help others plan, develop, and operate information systems. Included in the handbook are: (1) an introduction to RIS; (2) a detailed description of the System's two components: the Resource Bank and the Referral Library; (3) information on installation activities; (4) discussions of staffing, facilities, costs, the timetable, and evaluation; and (5) a summary of the evolution of the System. Appendixes include: the Resource Bank coding scheme, the Association Referral Information Service (ARIS) coding scheme, a list of suggested materials for a basic referral library collection, a sample numeric subclassification system, keyword in Context (KWIC) listings, the MOREL search procedure form, a sample data sheet, and an annotated list of selected collections of materials in the MOREL Information Center's information file.
