Abstract : This publication describes the Information Storage and Retrieval System, Project S H A R P (SHips Analysis and Retriyeval Project) developed for the Bureau of Ships Technical Library in a cooperative project between the Bureau Library and the David Taylor Model Basin. Documents can be retrieved using bibliographic data, subject matter and combinations of both. The Engineers Joint Council-advocated system of Roles and Links has been utilized as the method of indexing, and has been implemented as the means of search on the IBM 7090 and 1401 computer facilities at the David Taylor Model Basin for the Technical Library. Other library in-house applications are described, and additional features planned outlined. (Author)
