Abstract : A computer-based information store identifying current and recent Army, DoD and other Federal library research was developed. The research projects included were evaluated as to their objectives by means of a faceted classification scheme constructed for the purpose. Either computer or manual searches are easily made using the faceted classification. Computer manipulation of the information store is further facilitated by a detailed data element structure. This development was designed to support subsequent objectives of the project of identifying technical information problems and policies relating to Army, DoD and other Federal libraries and information services, to determine priorities among those issues requiring attention and to develop research designs for each project recommended. The report describes the approach and results and how they can be used. (Author)
