Post-Processing of Bibliographic Citations from DOE/RECON, NASA/RECON, and DOD/DROLS.
Bollinger, William A.; And Others
An interactive, self-guided program for the joint post-processing of bibliographic citations from the federal information centers of the Department of Energy (DOE), the Department of Defense (DOD), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is described. The program, presently installed on the Intelligent Gateway Processor of the Technology Information System (TIS/IGP) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, is under evaluation by the TIS user community from remote terminals by telephone dial-up over TYMNET, and the ARPA computer network. Users are individually authorized for access to specific information centers, and use standard commands for the downloading, compilation, and online review of citations in a common format. Previously reported post-processing capabilities have been expanded, permitting: (1) online citation review, categorization, and addition of new data elements; (2) disassembly and re-assembly of citations; (3) statistical analysis of data field contents; (4) cross-correlation of data field contents; and (5) concordance generation. Additionally, the new two-pass interpreter for the post-processing program permits: the transformation of abbreviated data field names into English names preferred by each agency, the statistical analysis of the density and completeness of data fields in selected sets of bibliographic citations, the elimination of redundant citations, and trend analysis. References are included. (Author/THC)
