Survey of Scientific-Technical Tape Services.
Carroll, Kenneth D., Ed.
The results of a survey of commercially available tape services which can provide libraries and information centers with data bases of scientific and technical literature are reported. During the past few years there has been an increasing number of tape services entering the information resources market. Each of these services makes available to the information center, on a continuing basis, computer-readable data which can be utilized in as many diverse services as the programs and clientele of the center require. This preliminary survey provides a directory of current tape services, listing the general characteristics of the data base; the most frequently used access points, the frequency of the tape issues, and the number of items reported on an average tape issue for each service. The data presented were obtained from the generators of the tapes, unless otherwise noted. More complete information can be obtained from the source noted for any tape listed. An alphabetical index of the tape services is included. (Author/NH)
