The Language Research in Progress System of the Center for Applied Linguistics.
Language Research in Progress (LRIP) is a facility for the rapid exchange of information among researchers on current work in all fields pertaining to human communication. It is concerned with current documented research, details of which are submitted voluntarily by investigators. The system consists of (1) a collection of document files containing background materials of research projects; (2) a three-way card file system ordered by project number, investigator/institution, and subject category; and (3) a thesaurus. Contributors supply filled-out Project Description Forms, abstracts, or current documents. LRIP puts out bi-annual Reports listing research current in the previous six months and runs a service supplying on request abstracts for the project descriptions listed in the latest Report. Its principal problem is that of persuading investigators to contribute project information of sufficient detail and currency. Appended are (1) the LRIP Project Description Form; (2) the LRIP-User Two-Minute Checklist; (3) two tables showing the departmental affiliations of 200 users of LRIP and their professional specialities and fields of interest; and (4) A Cost Study of the LRIP System, by Douglas Campion.
