Information Retrieval Systems.
National Archives and Records Service (GSA), Washington, DC. Office of Records Management.
Descriptions of representative nonconventional information systems in use today are given in order to provide managers, management analysts, supervisors, and others with ideas as to how they might improve the dissemination, storage, and retrieval of information in their offices. No attempt was made to evaluate the relative merits of the systems described or to include all the information retrieval systems in use within the Government today. Three general principles were followed in selecting the systems to be included: (1) to cover a representation of the more significant nonconventional methods and equipment in use today, from the simplest to the most complex; (2) to provide a wide spectrum of the types of work activities where nonconventional information retrieval methods and equipment are being successfully employed and (3) to limit the examples to operating systems using equipment that is generally available. There are many approaches one might take in solving any given information retrieval problem. The broader your knowledge of systems, the more likely you are to find the best answer to your information retrieval problem. (Author/NH)
