Abstract : This paper describes an experiment in the remote retrieval of information. A program was written to permit interrogation of the CDC 1604 computer from the Data Display dd65 display unit, and to provide a visual display of the result of the interrogation on the Cathode Ray Tube displays of the dd65 console. The interrogator also has an option of requesting a hard-copy printout of a display within a time limit of thirty seconds after the commencement of each new display presentation. Operator instructions are shown on the dd65 scope to assist the operator in making the interrogation. In addition, certain dd65 console lights are activated to indicate that the CDC 1604 has accepted each new input segment. This experimental program is integrated with and based upon the SEMI-AUTOMATIC BIBLIOGRAPHIC INFORMATION RETRIEVAL SYSTEM (SABIRS), developed by the Computer Facility, and used by the Technical Reports Library, U. S. Naval Postgraduate School.
