Text information retrieval systems by Charles T Meadow( Book )

45 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Information retrieval is a communication process that links an information user or seeker to a computer system that contains data bases or to a librarian, museum curator, fingerprint identification specialist, or whoever is in charge of a collection of what we are calling documents. The communication will normally involve the processing of text, strings of words known to both parties in the process that can be used to describe a document's content and other attributes and link it with a need expressed in similar terms. Even non-text entities, such as musical themes, are converted to alphanumeric symbols to allow effective storage, search, and retrieval. This book's purpose is to teach people who will be searching or designing text retrieval systems how the systems work. For designers, it covers problems they will face and reviews currently available solutions to provide a basis for more advanced study. For the searcher its purpose is to describe why such systems work as they do. The book is primarily about computer-based retrieval systems, but the principles apply to nonmechanized ones as well"--Back cover

A Plan for library cooperation in Pennsylvania by Charles T Meadow( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A five year plan and budget for Pennsylvania library cooperative activities is outlined based on two goals: (1) libraries should support state educational, industrial, governmental, health and other information programs by joining in a statewide library network to provide all publicly available information in the state to any citizen; and (2) libraries should serve as the link between the user's information needs and the library and non-library world of information. Interviews with library consortia representatives and librarians, and review of plans in other states reveal the strength of existing cooperative programs upon which proposals for new management procedures are built. Principal recommendations are: (1) better methods of library service delivery between cooperating institutions--I.E., Location of materials and administration of interlibrary loans; (2) more effective leadership emphasizing the central role of the State Library; and (3) evaluation methods for cooperative activities. Changes in legislation are proposed to enable any library in the State to obtain service from any state aided library. (Author/KP)

This report describes the development of a design and a small working model for a system for teaching and assisting in the performance of bibliographic on-line searches through the use of an intermediary computer. The system in its present form is intended for direct users of scientific and technical information systems. However, it is felt that the intermediary computer may become the standard way to receive information about, gain access to, and make productive use of the increasing number of complex and non standard computer services. Appended are tutorial programs and a transcript of a test use of the model. (Author/STS)
