Reference services of the Australian Road Research Board: cooperative aspects

The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) produces two reference tools, 'Australian road index' (ari) and 'Australian road research in progress' (arrip) and is associated with a third, the international road research documentation (IRRD) data base. Ari is a comprehensive index of published and unpublished literature relevant to roads, by Australians or about Australia. Arrip, first produced in 1981, is an annual index of current Australian road research projects, based on information collected during annual surveys conducted for IRRD. Both ari and arrip are computer based indexes, featuring classified arrangement, detailed author/ name, subject, title and project number indexes. IRRD Is a machine readable data base providing information from over 18 countries on publications, projects and computer programs. IRRD And machine readable ari (called arrd) are available on ausinet. Ari, arrip and IRRD are reference tools whose production depends upon personal, corporate, national and international cooperation. Their features, cooperative aspects, and the reference services provided by ARRB are discussed (a).
