The NATO-PCO DATABASE and the AGARD AEROSPACE DATABASE on CD-ROM
2 important databases of interest to scientists and engineers working in universities, research institutes and industry
We are pleased to announce the 1998 UPDATE of the "NATO Science & Technology Disk", i.e. the computer-readable COMPACT DISK (CD-ROM) which contains the third major update of the NATO-PCO DATABASE with its 62.000 bibliographical records referring to non-military scientific/technical literature generated with the sponsorship of the NATO Science Committee, as well as the second update of the special version of the AGARD AEROSPACE DATABASE providing access to the aerospace literature resulting from the programmes of AGARD, NATO's Advisory Group for Aerospace Research and Development.
With the easy-to-follow menu options of the retrieval software, access to data is simple and fast! The data is well-structured and the presentation is pleasant while functional. The software CD-ANSWER - (c) Copyright IHS Technolgies (DATAWARE Technologies Inc.) - which comes with the CD-ROM, received the prize for "The Best CD-ROM Retrieval Software of 1990". While the new WINDOWS version functions in ENGLISH, the DOS version is still working in ENGLISH, FRENCH and GERMAN. There is no need to learn a complex search language.
The CD-ROM can be used with standard Personal Computer equipment (PC XT/AT or 100% compatible (minimum 512 KByte RAM) with WINDOWS as well as MS-DOS/PC-DOS version 3.0 and above) including a CD-ROM drive.
The NATO-PCO DATABASE
The NATO-PCO DATABASE -(c) Copyright WTV GmbH, Germany - is a reference database. It covers more than 25 years of non-military scientific/technical meetings and publications in the NATO ASI SERIES, sponsored by the NATO Science Committee. The NATO ASI SERIES (now also called "NATO Science Series") - which is the official vehicle for publication of the results of NATO Advanced Study Institutes, NATO Advanced Research Workshops and other high-level scientific/technical meetings - is published by KLUWER ACADEMIC PUBLISHERS (The Netherlands), PLENUM PUBLISHING Corporation (USA) and SPRINGER-VERLAG (Germany)
The NATO-PCO DATABASE contains full references (with keywords and/or abstracts) to more than 62.000 contributions from international scientists of high repute.
The database covers a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines:
LIFE SCIENCES, ECOLOGY, MEDICINE, CHEMISTRY, GEOSCIENCES, ASTRONOMY, MATHEMATICAL AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES, BEHAVIOURAL SCIENCES, MATERIALS SCIENCES, ENGINEERING, SYSTEMS and COMPUTER SCIENCES. The new Partnership Sub-Series (DISARMAMENT, ENVIRONMENTAL SECURITY, HIGH TECHNOLOGY and SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY POLICY) are also covered.

The AGARD AEROSPACE DATABASE
This bibliographic database generated by PCO in co-operation with NASA (USA) and AGARD (France) provides information on thousands of AGARD-sponsored publications - conference proceedings, AGARDographs (major works of long-lasting interest), lecture series, reports and advisory reports - published from about 1960 to 1997. As is the case for the NATO-PCO DATABASE, the AGARD AEROSPACE DATABASE includes details not only of the complete publications but also of the papers contained in them (up to 40 or more in a conference proceedings). AGARD (The Advisory Group for Aerospace Research and Development) is an agency of NATO based in Paris. Its mission is essentially to interchange information about R&D in aerospace within and between the NATO nations.
AGARD's areas of activity cover:
AEROSPACE MEDICINE, AVIONICS, FLIGHT MECHANICS, ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVE PROPAGATION, FLUID DYNAMICS, GUIDANCE AND CONTROL, PROPULSION AND ENERGETICS, STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS, and TECHNICAL INFORMATION.
