Abstract
The purpose of this guide is to tell the user the depth to which information is indexed for entry into the Solid Waste Information Retrieval System (SWIRS) information bank, and to give him the tools for proper utilization of this bank. The guide is arranged in three sections. The first is a glossary that shows how certain terms are used in this particular information system. The second section is a formal thesaurus of the actual keywords by which abstracts are indexed for input to the SWIRS information bank. This is a simple alphabetical listing rather than hierarchical. In the third section are 'use' terms. This section lists terms that are not SWIRS keywords, and refers the user to the corresponding keywords that should be used either for indexing or for developing search strategies.
