An Information System Program For the Language Sciences. Final Project Report. LINCS Project Document Series.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Washington, DC. Language Information Network and Clearinghouse System.
This report summarizes the final results of project activities to define a discipline-based information system program for the language sciences. The Center for Applied Linguistic's successful efforts to consolidate the relatively large and heterogeneous professional community are described in part one, Cooperation in the Language Sciences. Part two, on the Language Information Network and Clearinghouse System (LINCS), contains an outline of the Center's concrete achievements in defining a flexible program framework for 1971-76, as well as a system concept for improved communication through formal channels, entailing: (1) voluntary collaboration among decentralized information processing efforts; (2) centralized clearinghouse functions utilizing modern automated techniques; and (3) a central source of program guidance and coordination based on the community's continuing advice and mandate. Appendices contain information about further projects related to LINCS. (Author/AM)
