Abstract : The report describes the development of a technical data file concerned with the technology of instructional system development suitable for a variety of users. The file was prepared in a way amenable to later computerized storage and retrieval. Abstracts of articles reporting sampling studies, correlational analysis, and experimental data were prepared more comprehensively so that they might often be used in lieu of the article. The principal results of the effort are as follows: A paper file of 2693 abstracts; a card file of titles; a coordinate index; a comprehensive key word index and bibliography; and MT/ST tapes of 1950 of the abstracts. Incidental to the development, comprehensive guidelines for abstracting this type of literature and a compendium of author-noted research-and-development needs were prepared.
