A computerized literature retrieval and storage system has been developed for postharvest-related references in floriculture, plant physiology, and other specific fields.
The languages utilized are spitbol and Mark IV, but others could easily be made to work.
The capabilities include retrieval by author, subject (keywords), year, and/or journal name.
Typical printouts include specific listings of the asked for acticles in alphabetical order by senior author.
The system can be accessed using a broad range of satellite terminals including DEC, IBM, and CRT. A procedure to print reference books directly off of the computer is being developed and should be ready by the end of 1980. Foreign articles have been translated into English by many cooperators from a number of countries, but special thanks goes to Dr.
Henk de Stigter of the Netherlands.
At present, approximately 4200 references are accounted for of which approximately 640 deal with roses, 400 for chrysanthemums, 560 for carnations and 210 for gladioli.
Printouts can be requested by contacting the authors.
At present, there is no charge for this service.
