Fife, Dennis W.; And Others
The technical features and operational status of interactive information systems, i.e. those providing a conversational usage mode to a non-programer through a data terminal device, are reviewed. The review is designed to aid information specialists in the state-of-the-art assessments preparatory to a detailed system selection procedure. It contains an index: 46 systems are listed by trade name. The index provides information about over 50 technical features. Information is based primarily on documentation received during 1972 and 1973. In addition, there are aids and examples contributing to the intended use of the index. (Author)
