Proceedings of a Conference on a National Information System in the Mathematical Sciences (Harrison House, Glen Cove, New York, January 18-20, 1970).
Phelps, C. Russell, Ed.
The purpose of this conference was to consider ways of developing a system of improved information services for the mathematical sciences and for the interfaces with related scientific fields. Conference memebrs investigated the achievements, coverage, and technology of existing information services and systems in the fields of engineering, physics, chemistry, computing and control, and statistics, as well as mathematics and mathematics education. Descriptions of the current status and developmental plans of various information systems are provided by scientists involved in these systems. Possible compatibilities of the classification schemes and data bases of each system with other systems were explored, as were the economic and management concerns of the several systems. These discussions were related with respect to their implications for a national information system for the mathematics sciences. (Author/FL)
