Abstract : An information retrieval (IR) system that would adequately serve the information needs of the educator and student is discussed. Such a system would include functions already automated in present IR hardware systems and, in addition, the automation of acquisition, lassification, and dissemination functions. Extrapolation from the research in the last three areas leads to a description of an advanced school system of the 1970's in which universities or secondary schools will be linked by data transmission lines to regional information centers. These centers will acquire, translate, and select items of information for automatic indexing, abstracting, and coding into magnetic tape files and for subsequent feeding to remote school systems. All elements in the educational system will be serviced by the integrated information retrieval systems which will organize and disseminate the information according to individual needs. (Author)
