The EPALIT data management system is used by the EPA Environmental Research Laboratory, Gulf Breeze, FL, to preserve and manipulate information in text databases. EPALIT provides the logical resources for data organization, analysis, and retrieval. It is completely interactive and permits natural language searching with full or truncated terms, imbedded word fragments, and Boolean search strings. The library has applied this system to the control and dissemination of its information resources. The Contribution Database, consisting of the laboratory's in-house and extramural publications, is the most sophisticated application to date. EPALIT's features are described in the context of this Contribution Database and its various report formats illustrated.
