NASA Open Literature

NASA's plan to provide 1994 Aerospace Open Literature citations with abstracts in the RECON System and on SCAN has encountered delays because of requirements of the Federal procurement process. We are currently in the process of awarding a contract to provide continued Abstracting and Indexing services for Open Literature. We anticipate that the interruption in service, which began January 15, 1994, will be no more than 6 months. In the meantime we are identifying gaps in our coverage during this interruption period and will fill in those gaps as quickly as possible.

The NASA STI Program will continue covering Open Literature. By working with responses from all of our valued customers we will attempt to improve the service in the future. Therefore, we ask for your understanding and patience during this period of interrupted service.
