ARRB Microfiche Production and Archiving and Its Role in the ARRB Information SystemDiscussion Notes (1979)
ARRB publications and internal reports are now held in archival form on 24X microfiche as A6 diazo sheets with a readable heading strip. This permits reliable, cheap, and ready access to copies of out of print materials produced over the period 1960 to date, and is also a comprehensive reference system for all current (as at 1979) ARRB published material including Internal, Research and Special Reports, Proceedings of Conferences and other meetings, and the Board's quarterly journal Australian Road Research. This archive now makes possible comprehensive reference use of scarce printed materials in a cheap and economic medium for prompt servicing of internal and external users, at substantial savings in copying and mailing costs. The procedures used, and standards adopted, are covered. The use of Computer Output Microfiche techniques provide similar support for computer documentation, support and software release is also specified and the place of microfiche as a medium within the spectrum of ARRB document production and distribution is discussed.
