Challenge of Information Retrieval, J.
Farradane, J. Document. 17, 233-44
(1961). Reviews the developments in
information retrieval over the past decade
and suggests that the possibilities
of progress in information retrieval
based on an adequate analysis of the
nature of knowledge appear as bright
as in any other branch of science. The
author proposes that information retrieval
become a branch of science in
its own right. WAS
Information Training, Anon., Science
135, 1053 (1962). Graduate training
courses and an on-the-job training program
in biological and medical information
storage and retrieval have been

New Section on Communication, Phyllis
V. Parkins, Science 135, 535-36 (1962).
Discusses the background of the establishment
of Section T (Information
and Communication) of AAAS and some
