A Pascal Package for Creation, Maintenance and Search in a Small Bibliographic Information Retrieval System
Degree GrantorUniversity of Canterbury
Degree NameBachelor of Science with Honours
This project focusses on the design, implementation and test of a small experimental information retrieval system for bibliographical data. The primary aim of the project is to experiment with a few different data structures which can be used to design the system and eventually deciding on a final design which allows fast access to documents and efficient usage of storage space. This report will describe the different data structures used for storing the thesaurus, descriptor-records and references. The results obtained from the analysis of the performance of each design will be shown in the report. A brief discussion on why the final design was chosen will also be carried out. The last section of the report will concentrate on the actual design implemented, including a brief documentation on how the package works and the various facilities provided.
