The Design of a Literature File in Aircraft-Related Environmental Medicine.
Hody, George L.
The U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory (USAARL) is often required to make specialized measurements and perform applied research in aircraft-related areas of environmental medicine. Rapid access to the periodical literature is essential for the completion of many of these projects. A growing file of reprints from the periodical literature is available at USAARL. A method for the orderly storage of the reprints in printed form and a separate scheme for rapid retrieval of abstracts was developed for the file. Both methods were based upon the natural organization of the data. Storage of papers within the file will be based on the major topic of each reprint while retrieval will be accomplished by the use of key words. The combined system is expandable and can be easily adapted to a variety of mechanical, electro-optical and computer storage and retrieval methods. (Author)
