Abstract:

The objective of the study was to compile relevant background and interpretive material and prepare a state-of-the-art report which would put the developments in the IS and R field into perspective and serve to orient a newcomer into this field. Section II describes IS and R as a problem in person- to-person communications. Section III presents basic IS and R concepts and techniques. It traces the history of traditional librarianship through early IS and R systems and up to the present state-of-the-art. Section IV describes the information products and services which are being employed to aid the process of communication between the originators and users of information. Section V categorizes the information system operations required to produce the products and services, into eight basic system functions from which all IS and R systems can be assembled. These basic functions are origination, acquisition, surrogation, announcement, index operation, document management, correlation, and end-use. Section VI describes five examples of IS and R applications or systems.
