Abstract:

The report covers the activities of the Transducer Information Center TIC for the past 16 months of operation. The project involved the collection and processing of all categories of transducer documents, data, literature, and reports into a storage-and-retrieval system. The Center made this information available to the transducer community on request by publishing accession lists or abstracts, research-contract compilations, a summary report covering nuclear radiation effects on transducers, and a monthly compilation of journal tables of contents. Members of the Center visited with manufacturers and users of transducers where discussions were held on the program objectives and the Center services. Over 1000 requests for technical and nontechnical assistance were handled by the Center specialists. In its fourth year of operation, the Center experienced a growth from a small-scale or pilot transducer information center to one which has met with favorable reaction and acceptance by its users.
