Increasing Special Library Collection Use in Very Computer Intensive Environments: Automatic Bibliographic Compilation and the Dissemination of Electronic Newsletters.
Sanchez, James Joseph
This paper describes the development and implementation of an automatic bibliographic facility and an electronic newsletter created for a special collection of aerospace and mechanical engineering monographs and articles at the University of Arizona. The project included the development of an online catalog, increasing the depth of bibliographic description, providing the beginnings of a comprehensive citation index for selected subjects, and developing an automatic bibliographic facility and local area electronic newsletter. Appendices, which make up the major part of the report, comprise: (1) the full code listing for the search program, written in FORTRAN 4, which demonstrates the relative simplicity of the facility for developing bibliographies; (2) the help note written to aid the user in implementing a search; and (3) the full text of an electronic newsletter (the IGEL Bibliographer) developed to make all bibliographic searches available within the interested group. The sample newsletter includes short bibliographies on eigenvalues, geometric nonlinearities, and composites. A source code listing of a single descriptor search facility is included as an addendum.
