Abstract : The standard has been prepared by DSIS to provide rules for cataloging scientific and technical reports. The purpose of the standard is to produce practical uniformity of cataloging and to provide users with a consistent form of citation and index entries. The analytic elements described in this volume include the abstract, subject headings, subject code (COSATI) numbers and subject keywords. Subject headings are of two types: TEST descriptors and DSIS descriptors. The rules governing the selection of terms for these lists are taken from the Thesaurus of Engineering and Scientific Terms compiled by the US Department of Defense for TEST descriptors and from the DSIS Subject Heading List for most DSIS descriptors.
