1. A COMPUTER-BASED SELECTIVE INFORMATION DISSEMINATION SYSTEM FOR NEUROSCIENTISTS
Joseph F. Caponio, Office of Program Analysis, National Institute of Neurological
Diseases and Blindness, National Institutes of Health, Public Health Service, Department
of Health Education and Welfare, Bethesda, Maryland. Peter Amacher, Brain
Information Service, University of California, Los Angeles, Californri-.
A selective information dissemination system for the Brain Information Service
(BIS) of the UCLA Brain Research Institute which has been established and proven
successful in experimental operation is discussed. This paper also describes the
computer programs of this system. These include glossary control, dictionary updating,
searching, and other programs necessary for the implementation of a complex computer
aided bibliographic retrieval system. The Service, an integral part of Neurological
Information Network of the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Blindness
(NINDB), has been established to serve as a repository of information in the basic
brain sciences and to be available to scientists throughout the nation. Its subject
scope presently includes neutochemistry, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropharmacology.
BIS enters citations directly into the system from those journals most
important to the user of the system. The National Library of Medicine (NIM) MEDLARS
provides monthly magnetic tapes containing biomedical citations within the scope of BIS
from all journals input to NIM MEDLARS. After code conversion from Honeywell 800 to
IBM 7094/7040, selected MEDLARS citations are merged with BIS citations generating a
new BIS master citation file.
2. CURRENT AWARENESS PROCESSING WITHIN GIS
Robert E. Wagner, IBM FSD, 18100 Frederick Pike, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20760.
The Current Awareness capability within the Document Processing capability of GIS
(Generalized Information System) utilizes user profiles, intermediate data produced
during the update cycle for a given data base and the updated data base itself. Profiled
are composed of a set of identifying and header information, such as name and address,
a query, and a List statement wiich identifies the bibliographic data to be printed for
each document of interest. The query is composed of a set of words divided into
categories. Positive and negatev weights may be applied to each category, thus
allowing AND, OR, and AND NOT Boolean Logic. Since each Profile- can have its own
List statement, each individual can dictate the output for his own individual needs.
The output data types are limited only by the data available in the data base. The
system provides for adding and deleting of profiles and for a seg .-ted batch processing
of the profiles against the current data.
