The medium-sized information service: its automation for retrieval
U.S. Army Materiel Command, Harry Diamond Laboratories, 1963 - Information storage and retrieval systems - 24 pages
A theoretical discussion of the basic elements influencing the organization and operation of a documentation office (the type of information, the clientele, the personnel, and the tools and machines) is followed by a case study. The operations of a medium-size reference service were automated first by utilizing EAM equipment: later, a computer. In the process, the coordinate indexing system was replaced by the ABC (ApproachBy-Concept) system, permitting manual as well as automatic retrieval. Possible application of this system to large documentation centers is explained. (Author).
