Abstract

AGSOREFS is a shared bibliographic database designed to serve two main purposes. First, it is intended to serve as a single reference pool for all AGSO relational geoscience databases, replacing a number of earlier reference systems. Its standardised references can be displayed from any Oracle database via a unique reference ID. Second, it is designed to function as a pooled reference system for all AGSO staff members. Users can select from it the references they want in their private lists, and can attach their own IDs and keywords. The menus, screen forms and reports used to input and view references, keywords, etc., are described in detail. Definitions of most fields in the database are given in some depth under descriptions of the screen forms - providing, in effect, a comprehensive data dictionary of the database. The database schema, with all definitions of tables, views and indexes is listed in an appendix to the guide. Instructions are given in a second appendix on how to parse and bulk-load references from documents and other databases.
