Notes on preparation of publication input to ari / IRRD: an update to 1979

This report updates a previously issued report entitled 'guidelines for preparation of document/ publication input to IRRD' and aims to reiterate input rules highlighting areas it has proved necessary to standardise or formulate policy on over the past three years. Title, author (personal and corporate), publication and document data, abstract, subject classification and keyword fields are all dealt with separately. There is now almost total adherence to specifications as laid down in the IRRD working rules for Australian road index input preparation, and the sample input sheets included in the report illustrate use of these rules. The report in total is intended to be for use in conjunction with, and not as a replacement for the IRRD working rules. Incorporation of local keys and location data in ari is described, both facilities being enhancements to the index as it was first designed. The relationship between hard copy ari and the machine readable version, arrd, is referred to and a corporate body authority listing is included as Appendix A.
