Complex search operations

An important advantage of electronic storage is that it allows for complex search operations, within a document as well as within an entire archive. The receiver can locate relevant articles by searching in bibliographic databases with abstracts (e.g. INSPEC), as well as in full text `document bases'. In order to allow the receiver to take advantage of this possibility, the representation of the information has to be characterised clearly and correctly.
