Abstract : The TIS Intelligent Gateway Computer at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory provides authorized users automated access to other information centers, downloading of descriptive information and numerical data, and post-processing of bibliographic citations. Included is the aggregation of extracted information into topical files, the elimination of redundancy, and online review for the creation of annotated relevant sets. Post-processing of the reviewed information can be carried out by permutation of titles, abstracts, and descriptors with statistics (some in graphical form) of their single/multi-term expressions, statistical cross-correlation of data elements, and the creation of concordances and indexes. These tools give new insight into a subject matter or the characteristics of corporate/personal publications. These self-guided procedures can be performed online from remote terminals by telephone dial-up, WATS-lines, over TYMNET, and via the ARPA computer network. The TIS Intelligent Gateway Computer permits the linking of terminals among users. Information specialists and information requestors may jointly view and discuss the progress of an interactive search and its analysis from any location. Uncertain legal constraints by commercial information vendors limit the use of downloading and post-processing at this time to bibliographical information in the public domain, e.g. DOE/RECON.
