It is the purpose of this handbook to provide managers and their assistants with guidelines for determining where new information processing systems (dissemination, storage and retrieval) might profitably be employed in Government offices and with criteria for selecting the right methods and equipment. While the main objective is to encourage greater use of modern information retrieval techniques, the guidelines should also help prevent the installation of ill-advised or unprofitable systems. For those offices that have already installed modern information retrieval systems, the handbook may prove helpful in analyzing and evaluating existing system performance or in revising an ineffective system. This handbook is intended primarily for the use of management analysts, systems personnel, middle management, and any others who may be directly involved in conducting information retrieval studies or in designing and installing an information retrieval system.
