MRIS Publishes Cumulative Index For 1970-1976
The Maritime Research Information Service (MRIS) is sponsored by the Maritime Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, for the benefit of the U.S.
maritime industry through the Transportation Research Board, National Research Council. In operation since 1970, MRIS has been providing a variety of services to meet the needs of the U.S.
industry for specialized maritime information.
The Maritime Research Information Service's recently published "Cumulative Index for 1970-1976" gives users of maritime information a timesaving and desktop access to more than 12,000 abstracts of reports and journal articles now stored in the MRIS computer file. The publication lists more than 4,000 key words in alphabetical order. Under each key word are listed the titles and accession numbers of the abstracted reports and articles referenced by MRIS.
The new MRIS publication will be distributed on a complimentary basis to all users who subscribe to both "MRIS Abstracts" and MRIS "Current Awareness" in 1977. Subscribers to one or the other, but not both, of these products may purchase the "Cumulative Index" for $15. Non-subscribers to the regular MRIS products may purchase the "Cumulative Index" for $25.
The Index covers abstracts that have been published in 13 issues of MRIS Abstracts during 1970-76. Users of the Index can identify the accession numbers of references whose titles are relevant to a specific search. The corresponding abstracts can be located in the various issues of MRIS Abstracts, or may be ordered from MRIS.
Requested abstracts will be transmitted in computer printout format. The charge for the service is $10 for 10 or fewer abstracts plus 10 cents for each additional abstract. Thus, a user would pay $11 to receive 20 abstracts whose accession numbers had been identified in the "Cumulative Index 1970-1976." For further information, contact Maritime Transportation Research Board, National Academy of Sciences, 2101 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C.
