Urbandoc: A Bibliographic Information System. Technical Supplement 1: General Manual.
City Univ. of New York, NY. Graduate School and Univ. Center.
The URBANDOC General Manual is the second volume of the final report of the URBANDOC Demonstration Project. All three volumes are concerned with the applicability of computerized documentation techniques to the literature of urban planning and renewal. The "General Manual" stands midway between the "Demonstration Report" (see LI 002 880), which discusses the goals and accomplishments of the Project, and the "Operations Manual" (see LI 002 882), which goes into the programming system and its operation. The "General Manual" covers: the analytic techniques of the over-all work flow, the computer related techniques, and the use of the data base. The appendix includes the complete URBANDOC Thesaurus (descriptors, structuring, and rotated display). (Author/MM)
