A MARC II-based program for retrieval and dissemination

Journal of library automation [September 1971]


Abstract: Subscriptions to the Library of Congress'' MARC tapes number approximately sixty. The uses to which the weekly tapes have been put have been minimal in the area of Selective Dissemination of Information (SDI) and current awareness. This paper reviews work that has been performed on batched retrieval/dissemination and provides a description of a highly flexible cooperative SDI system developed by the Library, University of Saskatchewan, and the National Science Library. The system will permit searching over all subject areas represented by the English language monographic literature on MARC.
