Abstract

Document Search and Retrieval (DSR) system software is becoming widely available, for example, from Xerox Corporation in Viewpoint TM and Globalview environments. To maximize the value of this database resource, it is important that individual users make timely filings in DSR and that it be easy and convenient to file documents therein. Filing in DSR is accomplished by selecting appropriate electronic document icons, executing a %opy7' command of the document to the DSR icon, and editing a "filing options" sheet as desired. Thus several steps are involved in achieving the above filing objective: documentation creation? document distribution, and filing/storage.

The proposal represents an improvement over the current method for filing in DSR that requires a se...
