Four-Year Summary, Educational and Commercial Utilization of a Chemical Information Center, Part II.
Schipma, Peter B., Ed.
The major objective of the Illinois Institute of Technology Retrieval Institute (IITRI) Computer Search Center (CSC) is to educate and link industry, academia, and government institutions to chemical and other scientific information systems and sources. The CSC is in full operation providing services to users from a variety of machine-readable data bases with minimal restrictions and a high degree of flexibility. Research is conducted and statistics maintained to continuously study, monitor, and improve Center components including data bases, profiles, systems, personnel functions, and user services. Education and training is provided through seminars, workshops in profile preparation, and a graduate course in "Modern Techniques in Chemical Information." The educational and marketing efforts familiarize users and potential users with the many advantages of computerized retrieval. For additional information see volume I of the report--IR 001 165.
