Inventory of Major Information Systems and Services in Science and Technology.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
The purpose of this inventory is to list a number of "major" information services and systems in the field of science and technology, either in the government or in the private sector. If a distinction is made between traditional information systems such as libraries, documentation services etc., and the wide spectrum of mechanized systems, the inventory aims at retaining all mechanized systems and only important traditional ones. In particular, it includes all systems which are designed as mechanized systems from either a search or storage viewpoint and to which general national access is possible. Some systems are also included which consist of mechanized entry into systems which are based in other countries. Systems to which funds have been committed are also included even if not yet fully developed. The scope of the inventory includes social sciences and related fields. The indexes included at the beginning of the inventory enable the user to find an entry by its name, acronym, sponsoring body, country, area or field, etc. The present version of this inventory has been prepared on the basis of a joint survey carried out by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
