Information Retrieval System Descriptive Report.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Center for Studies in Vocational and Technical Education.
The report describes Wisconsin's information retrieval system with remote, on-line computer access to nearly 200,000 educational documents. Briefly outlined are the operations and indexing of materials for the computer program, documents of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC), file access, training sessions, and remote location access. Also listed are the locations of Wisconsin libraries containing ERIC microfiche collections. Response to the project of installing terminals for a four-month trial period in each school (March-May, 1974) has been very favorable. There is no doubt that information retrieval systems using computers will become essential as the amount of available information sources continues to grow rapidly. (NH)
