Summary

This paper explains the development of an Information Search and Recording System (ISRS) for research and development organizations which require an efficient method of locating and recording stored information, including literature searches by staff members. The system will enable staff members to: (1) locate stored information by use of a classification and address system specifically designed for program needs; (2) develop a greater degree of communication concerning developmental activities by use of a common language built into the system; (3) discriminate in choice of personal reading and data gathering materials by observation of types of material read by other staff members and by emphasizing experimental research related to program; and (4) keep abreast of current research by regular personal reading of experimental materials, including abstracts of material read by other staff members. The system can be planned and put into operation by one staff member in approximately thirty hours plus secretarial time. Before the system is developed, contact is made with suppliers of information retrieval systems to determine the feasibility of an automatic retrieval system for the organization. If an automatic system is not warranted by present information needs, the procedures and conceptual framework for the non-automatic system can be easily adapted to an automatic system in the future.
