The computerised Minerals Bibliography, jointly operated by New Zealand Geological Survey and Resource Management and Mining Group (Ministry of Energy), is a computerised index and retrieval system for mineral exploration-related company reports and scientific research literature on economic minerals, excluding coal and petroleum. It uses VISOR software with a customised record form consisting of eight screens or pages displayed consecutively on a computer terminal. The first page has fields for basic bibliographic information and keywords, whereas the remaining screens are for detailed geological, geochemical, geophysical, drillhole, and other information if required. Most entries use only the first page, but some warrant the inclusion of more detailed information (particularly drilling results) and the additional seven pages of fields may be used. The file is searched mainly by using the keywords for the fields: LOCATION, PROSPECT, COMMODITY and DEPOSIT, although the system allows any field to be searched. A standard set of keywords is used. A search results in the creation of a set of records which can be displayed on the terminal screen or printed in various forms
