Abstract

The practice of using a large international database to retrieve scientific abstracts through a time sharing network may be replaced by storing this type of information locally on a microcomputer system. Evaluation of alternative configurations through the use of systems simulation is well known [1-3], and in this study a simulation model is developed to reflect the characteristics of a typical information retrieval system on three specific microcomputer configurations.
