Abstract

In an initial effort to gather information, NIC requested the first Station Agents to send copies of any existing bibliographies of their Site's reports. Since then, other efforts have occupied NIC's time, and the projeted bibliography of network reports is not yet issued. In the meantime, several Agents have sent lists of their Site's reports, and Peggy Karp's bibliography has covered much of the ground. In the meantime, also, the expected demand for a compilation of references and for an accessible collection of the actual reports has developed. NIC has responsibility to satisfy this demand from Sites for other relevant reports, to allow Sites to refer requests for their own reports to the NIC for centralized handling, and to provide Sites and others with bibliographic tools to facilitate reference to all Network reports.

COMPILATION OF LIST OF RELEVANT SITE REPORTS

The Network Information Center is working to compile a list of all

Site-produced reports which are of interest to Network participants.

Reports procuced under ARPA IPT contracts and any other relevant

reports produced by the Sites on information processing, network

planning, the hardware and sorfware for the projects, and some

general reports on the subject concerns of individual Sites, are

being identified, to be listed and acquired for the Network

Information Center collection.

In an initial effort to gather information, NIC requested the first

Station Agents to send copies of any existing bibliographies of their

Site's reports. Since then, other efforts have occupied NIC's time,

and the projeted bibliography of network reports is not yet issued.

In the meantime, several Agents have sent lists of their Site's

reports, and Peggy Karp's bibliography has covered much of the

ground. In the meantime, also, the expected demand for a compilation

of references and for an accessible collection of the actual reports

has developed. NIC has responsibility to satisfy this demand from

Sites for other relevant reports, to allow Sites to refer requests

for their own reports to the NIC for centralized handling, and to

provide Sites and others with bibliographic tools to facilitate

reference to all Network reports.

Requests from inside or outside the Network for reports performed

under an ARPA IPT Contract may be forwarded or referred to NIC for

answer. NIC will not attempt to supply copies to outsiders, but will

answer the request with information for ordering from government

where this information is known, or will refer the request to the

report's originator when necessary.

NIC would appreciate receiving any other existing bibliographies of

relevant Site-produced reports.

NIC would also appreciate being placed on distribution lists for new

relevant Site-produced reports.
