Abstract : Designed for large scale research programs with lengthy literature surveys and record keeping requirements, the RISIX indexing system permits clerical personnel to create, update, and retrieve report reference information files by report number, title, author, originating organization, or key words. Operational on a small computer, the program provides a rapid access inhouse data storage/retrieval capability which may be frequently updated. Information is exchanged through a standard data terminal. (Author)
