Cost Elements and Charge Bases in Information Centers: Proceedings of Panel Discussion.
Williams, Martha E., Ed.
At the March 7, 1973, Association of Scientific Dissemination of Information Centers meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a panel discussion on cost elements and charge bases in information centers was held. The panel was composed of representatives of seven information centers which process machine-readable bibliographic data bases and provide selective dissemination of information and/or retrospective searches. In order to obtain comparable data and avoid differences in terminology, an advance questionnaire had been completed by the panelists. The questions centered around seven topics: selection of data bases, data base reformatting, system features, data base costs, profile costs, center costs and accounting, and charges and pricing. After each topic was introduced by the moderator the panelists presented their answers. (Author/LS)
