Abstract : An information retrieval program was written to aid in coordinating literature searches by separate individuals. The program utilizes rudimentary techniques originally developed in question answering and theorem proving programs in order to determine whether a fact input to it is relevant to previously stored facts. The list of relevant facts, together with a citation to the article reporting them, is then printed out. The program is currently being used by a group of physiological psychologists on a field trial basis. (Author)
