Computer-Based Storage and Retrieval of Geoscience Information: Bibliography 1946-69.
Hruska, J.; Burk, C. F., Jr.
The application of computer technology to storage and retrieval of geoscience data has increased markedly since about 1966, and has resulted in the publication of numerous papers describing various aspects of this work. Unfortunately, these are widely dispersed in the literature, many in relatively obscure journals, proceedings and other sources. This bibliography has been compiled to make possible more effective use of this reservoir of experience, techniques and applications. The objective of the bibliography is to cite all papers published or made available to the end of 1969 that deal with one or both of the following: (1) Use of computers and/or computer-readable records for the storage and retrieval of geoscience information, including data, bibliographies, abstracts, indexes, text, and graphical representations; (2) Techniques, codes, thesauri, studies, or other aids of direct assistance to the above items in (1). The scope of geoscience is limited to the solid-earth sciences, and the bibliography does not include such other computer-oriented applications as data analysis, mathematical geology, statistics, simulation or non-computer oriented systems.
