Individualized Instruction for Data Access (IIDA). Final Design Report.
Meadow, Charles T.; And Others
This report describes the development of a design and a small working model for a system for teaching and assisting in the performance of bibliographic on-line searches through the use of an intermediary computer. The system in its present form is intended for direct users of scientific and technical information systems. However, it is felt that the intermediary computer may become the standard way to receive information about, gain access to, and make productive use of the increasing number of complex and non standard computer services. Appended are tutorial programs and a transcript of a test use of the model. (Author/STS)
