Abstract:

The documentation and information retrieval aspects of Army study effort is examined. Eight relatively independent study programs are described. These programs are found to be documented by some seventeen different information flow mechanisms. The identified information flow mechanisms and the manner in which the programs are managed constitutes a weak system by documentation and information flow standards. A review of the state of the art of library science, documentation and information retrieval trends and experience is made to identify a range of alternative improvements. A modest pilot system, to include a central reference library with a searching aid and a periodic bibliographic publication, is proposed. Alternative follow-on improvements are cited as candidates for further research. Author
