Abstract : The project involved the collection and processing of all categories of transducer documents, data, literature, and reports into a storage-and-retrieval system. The Center made this information available to the transducer technological community on request by publishing accessions lists of abstracts, research-contract compilations, and a summary report on force transducers. Members of the Center implemented the program by visiting with manufacturers and users of transducers to discuss program objectives and to describe the nature of services, both technical and nontechnical, that were available to them. Over 350 requests for technical and nontechnical assistance were handled by specialists assigned to the Center. In its third year as a small-scale transducer information center, the TIC has experienced a significant growth in number and types of services, and the users have expressed pronounced enthusiasm and satisfaction with the operation.
