Abstract:

A prototype information-handling and retrieval system designed in a previous program for literature in the subject field of biological effects of radio frequency radiations was implemented and evaluated in preliminary tests. This system makes the information base accessible on the basis of its technical and bibliographic data content elements. These elements are represented within the system according to a specially designed data classification and encoding scheme. For initial operation and testing purposes the system was implemented using simple card-handling equipment. Various operating alternatives were explored from semi-automated to large-scale digital computing and time-share systems. The prototype system was found to be conveniently adaptable to these alternate modes of operation. The feasibility of the prototype system and its design principles have been demonstrated and the system appears suitable for practical applications. Author
