Abstract:

A model was developed for teaching coordinate index searching and preparation as well as for determining the effect of index and question variables on index performance. In this model coordinate index searching and preparation are considered as a series of decision-making steps. A coordinate index was prepared to 710 documents on library automation, systems studies in libraries, and indexing. The coordinate index has elements of vocabulary control but does not use roles, links, or weighting of index terms. Coordinate index searching and preparation were taught to library school students using classroom instruction, computer-aided instruction and on-line searching of test questions.
