An interesting description of a mechanized
searching system in action appears in the June
1963, "Metals Review." The ASM system, which
has been operating for three years, has' been challenged
by a broad range of questions. Examples
show how the system has met the challenge, often
not -only successfully but with a definite savings in
search time. Not to be overlooked by the researcher
is the value of a negative response, indicating that
the information does not exist in the literature.

By JOSEPH BECKER, Data Processing Consultant,
and R. M. HAYES, Advanced Information Systems,
Inc. The need for improved information systems has
become critical in recent years because of the steady
growth in size and complexity of organizations and
data. The fundamental purpose of this new book is
to show that the solution of any information system
problem requires the cooperative efforts of people
drawn from a variety of different areas. It describes
the tools these people bring to the task, their interaction
The authors provide a unified structure within
which current and future developments in information
retrieval and allied fields can be viewed. They
emphasize the general principles common to any
given approach to a specific problem. The book is
organized into three parts: The first summarizes the
existing tools and the way they are used. The second
section presents the structure within which these
tools should be viewed, and discusses the problems
to be solved in design and implementation of a
system. The third part describes the theoretical foundation
upon which the general principles of information
retrieval are based.
