Abstract:

A major objective of the study is the development and application of a methodology for analysis and characterization of chemical data compilation activities. The basic analysis technique tested was the examination of each data compilation as a data file and its substance and property coverage. However, because of the complex interactions which exist between a data compilation activity and the environment on which it is operated and the technical activity which it supports, the study also examined operating statistics, operating motives, users served and other factors that might shed light on basic design factors. Emphasis was placed upon obtaining a greater amount of information relevant to the design elements associated with the actual development of a national chemical information system.
