Indexation Rules for Metallurgy in PASCAL. Original Title: Regles d'Indexation de la Metallurgie'--Technical Note Issued by Informascience--January 1980. Translated by Marie Wallin.
Royal Inst. of Tech., Stockholm (Sweden). Library.
The indexing rules presented are designed for use with a new French-German database on metallurgy being developed under an agreement by CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris) and BAM (Bundesanstalt fur Materialprufung, Berlin). The new database, which will feature multilingual titles and index terms (French-German-English-) and bilingual abstracts (French-German), is expected to acquire and process some 30,000 references per year. The indexing rules given reflect some changes in the 1979 rules for the metallurgy section of PASCAL, primarily in the classification codes, and in the indexing and selection of input documents. Types of descriptors and other subject terms employed in the system are listed and described, the chaining together of controlled vocabulary and free text terms in the PASCAL system is explained, and the use of supplementary classification codes is outlined. An appendix on the application of PASCAL in the field of metallurgy using the EPOS/VIRA computer system is attached. (JL)
