Abstract:

The Data Element Dictionary standardizes the data elements and identifies the data uses that will constitute DTICs uniform system. These standardized data elements will enable DTIC to incorporate its data banks, currently operating independently, into a uniform system. They will provide the capability of standardized access to all component data bases, or any combination of them. The dictionary, in becoming the authority for data standardization, will serve as a communication link between system designers, programers and subject specialists, and will provide a foundation for effective management of the data constituting the DoD Scientific and Technical Information System. Also included are detailed descriptions of the current data banks and their relationships to the planned uniform system. Author
