Abstract:The New York Times Information Bank, developed by the New York Times, is a computerized, interactive information storage and retrieval system designed to provide easy and efficient access to more than sixty different current events publications. The Information Bank has been developed with the end user specifically in mind; every effort has been made to bridge the gap between the world of automated information systems and the student, business executive, government official or other information seeker. The kind of information the system offers, covering a wide variety of current events topics that address a large and diverse audience, demands that the Information Bank be an easy-to-operate tool, readily available to the end user.
