A Mechanized Information Services Catalog.
Marron, Beatrice; And Others
The National Bureau of Standards is mechanizing a catalog of currently available information sources and services. Information from recent surveys of machine-readable, commercially-available bibliographic data bases, and the various current awareness, batch retrospective, and interactive retrospective services which can access them have been correlated and converted into a machine-readable data base. A prototype searching capability has been established on an operational interactive retrieval system, the Stanford Public Information Retrieval System (SPIRES). Reasons for establishing the catalog and the choice of the initial information are detailed, and the prototype implementation is described. Sample queries are included, as well as a to-date listing of the catalog. Plans for future development are discussed. (Author/LS)
