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.
