Abstract

At six‐weekly intervals The British Iron and Steel Research Association issues a Report List containing abstracts of and references to its research reports. One list may contain between 25 and 50 abstracts. A classification system for these references is very necessary for the Association's Information Section. The system that has been used for the past seven years consists of a subject and author index and has grown and been amended so often that it has gradually become more unworkable as the diversity of our research work has increased.
