APPENDIX E
SOME ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED IN STRING INDEXING

The most immediate source of additional information on string indexing systems is the published literature cited in the References. The following list of addresses may, however, prove useful to those seeking further details or wishing to acquire software for one of the rubricated systems.

Software for KWIC and KWOC types of string indexing is so common that no effort has been made to include names of possible sources. (For a recent comparison of packages, and some addresses of suppliers in the United Kingdom, see Prowse 1983.) Similar considerations apply to systems for producing library catalog displays.
