USER REACTIONS TO THE HIGHWAY RESEARCH INFORMATION SERVICE ON-LINE RETRIEVAL DEMONSTRATION PROJECT

The author, in reviewing the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's experience with the HRIS on-line service, concludes that the system provides an important first step in any research activity. In the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation the system is used in an informal environment. It is felt that the system has been designed simply enough so that almost anyone in the research division could operate it adequately -- preferably, with the one experienced operator present to define and configure the search strategy. The off-line print is pointed out as being beneficial by reducing connect time and thereby providing cost savings.
