A Computerized Reference Library Using ZOG. Technical Report No. 7.
Gregg, Lee W.; Hannah, Joyce E.
To assist researchers, practitioners, and students in locating journal articles, books, papers, and reports relevant to all aspects of document design, the Document Design Project staff at Carnegie-Mellon University (CMU) is designing and building a computerized reference library using the operating system ZOG. The library will include material from all the disciplines that apply to document design and will display on a video terminal screen not only the bibliographical information, but also such things as the abstract, a brief description of any experiments, and guidelines for applying the findings. The operating system ZOG is a rapid response, large network, menu selection system developed for person/machine communication by CMU's computer science department. (This booklet gives step-by-step directions for using the system, illustrates instructions with actual frames that would be displayed on the videoscreen, describes the contents of the library, and explains the four ways material can be accessed--by author, discipline, type of document, or guidelines for document designers.)
