By the end of 1981 there are expected to be as many as 2000 centres in Great Britain making use of free text storage and retrieval systems. Prospective users are analysed by type of institution, and by class of computer in use or envisaged. Package systems are likely to satisfy a major part of this growth in use. Applications are expected in bibliographic services, technical information management and commercial correspondence and data retrieval. Special systems for legal data, safety standards and records, and regulations in general may also be important.
