Abstract:

By use of the IBM 7094, the Materials Laboratory performs searches and produces the KWIC index section of the Materials Information Bulletin. Under contract to the Materials Laboratory, thesaurus maintenance, keyword index printing, and data-base updating are performed on the NCR 304 computer at the University of Dayton. The use of deep indexing with links and roles formed the basis of the system after evaluating the value of links and roles, however, roles were eliminated. A Miracode system just recently purchased will be used to store Materials Laboratory information. Several studies covering specific areas of this system have been conducted. Currently, the Center is sending questionnaires to certain groups after running searches for them to determine the value of each search.
