Abstract:

An information retrieval system was developed by the Marine Corps Operations Analysis Group MCOAG to furnish assistance to Headquarters Marine Corps HQMC, the Marine Corps Landing Force Development Center MCLFDC and the Marine Corps Long Range Study Panel LRSP. In operation of the system, a large volume of classified information is scanned by MCOAG analysts and only those items pertinent to operations research on Marine Corps problems are filtered out. Each document is then tagged with descriptors which attempt to capture essential elements of the paper. The descriptors are drawn from groupings of things, places, operational function, organizations, physical phenomena, values, processes and environments. The title of each document, source, security classification, year of publication, descriptors, the Defense Documentation Center DDC accession number and the secret or confidential file accession number of HQMC, Marine Corps Schools, MCLFDC or CNA are put into computer storage. Monthly accession bulletins are to be produced for HQMC, MCLFDC, marine Corps Long Range Study Panel and the MCOAG research staff. Individual requests for information from HQMC staff sections or MCLFDC project officers are to be processed to retrieve documents and to produce bibliographies on demand.
