A Program for a National Information System For Physics and Astronomy 1971-1975.
American Inst. of Physics, New York, NY. Information Div.
The current status of the National Information System for Physics and Astronomy which is being implemented by the information Division of the American Institute of Physics is reported in this issue of a series of annual reports on the program. The goals of the system, their relative priorities and the over-all strategy by which they are to be achieved are discussed in Chapter I. Chapter II provides some background material on the community of physicists and astronomers, and the information channels on which they have relied until now, in order to provide the context in which the proposed goals can best be under stood. Chapter III describes the stage of the system which is currently being implemented, and Chapter IV describes the developmental and planning activities which are projected for the future. Additional technical and background material is appended. (Author/NH)
