Abstract : Revised COSATI guidelines developed to maximize standardization of descriptive cataloging entries are defined. The rules presented govern the form of teh essential cataloging elements for reports processed by the major federal information processing agencies: U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Department of Energy, National Aeronautics and Space Adminstration, and U.S. Department of Defense. the elements are: accession number, organization name, organizational code, title (unclassified), subtitle or descriptive note, personal author, publication date, pagination (for printed documents), funding number, report number, availability, supplementary note, and security classification. Additional elements of information and retrieval such as subject fields and groups, descriptors/subject terms, and abstract are also included within the scope of this standard. The guidelines are intended to provide users with a form of citation and index entries consistent within the products of the various information systems, and to facilitate the exchange of bibliographic information among the federal information processing agencies in the technical report literature field without costly duplicative effort, especially for machine- readable media.
