Abstract:

The BOLD Bibliographic On-Line Display System serves as a general purpose vehicle for research on the components of a real-time retrieval system. Specific subjects for investigation are indexing, classification and categorizing schemes, file organization, and user-system communication. The program operates in a time-sharing environment doing independent retrieval for multiple simultaneous users. A retrieval station may be any teletype connected to the time-sharing system. A station may be augmented with a CRT console and a light pen for rapid displaying of the retrieval information. Retrieval is effected by the specification of categories andor retrieval phrases, using Boolean connectors. There are two modes for retrieval operation the Browse mode and the Search mode. In the Browse mode the user may specify broad categories and retrieval terms and then browse through the retrieval information entry by entry. The user designates what information is to be returned. This may be anything that is defined in the data base, and may range from a single component such as author, title, etc., for a bibliographic data set to a complete body of text i.e., abstract.
