4. JET PROGRAM LIBRARY ORGANISATION

This report presents a study of the JET laboratory's computer program library organisation on the IBM mainframe at Harwell. It makes recommendations for an improved and more consistent classification scheme. Alternative methods of implementing this scheme are investigated and some conclusions are drawn. Note that this study was conducted during May and June 1986 and this report refers to the JET libraries as they existed at that time and not at the time the report is dated.

7. THE LIBRARY INFORMATION SERVICES ON THE PRIME

This document describes the current computerised library information services on the Prime computer at Culham. Information is given on how to enter new articles on the AES Word Processor, how to transfer files between the AES and the Prime, how to update LIBRIS and run the library bulletin and SDI services.

8. APRIS TO ORACLE CONVERSION

This document is one of several documents produced as part of a study of the problems involved in converting APRIS (Authority Program Resource Information System) to an alternative hardware/software configuration. This is a detailed report on how APRIS (and RAPIDE programs generally) can be converted to ORACLE. The feasibility of modifying the RAPFOR conversion program to convert from RAPPORT to ORACLE is also discussed,

10. SPICES AND STATUS

SPICES is a rule based programming language providing backward and forward chaining, together with the inference engine which controls the firing of the rules. It can be used to develop expert systems in stand alone mode but is particularly powerful when used in conjunction with the free text information retrieval system STATUS.

11. The COTAN Manual

This manual describes all of the commands developed for Culham's multi-access system on the KDF9. COTAN is an acronym for Culham's Task Activation Network. I wrote up some of the commands which I developed but I also managed the whole project.

12. The GHOST Graphical Output System

This describes the Graphical Output System developed at Culham for the KDF9. I didn't develop the system but was asked to write the manual.

13. The LSD Manual

This manual describes the LSD language I developed at Culham. I designed the language called Language for System Development. This was a medium anguage similar to C which was developed at Bell Labs at the same time. I also wrote a compiler for LSD and trained up scientists to program in it. I also collaborated with a colleague to write an interpreter for LSD which could be used for online debugging.
