This paper reports on a recent effort at the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications where it is shown that a medical bibliographic database, when linked to a mini-computer's file handling software, can be used to build a demonstration database of document images. The images of the tables of contents from approximately fifty medical books were stored on magnetic disks. The medical bibliographic database, hosted on a remote mainframe computer, was linked to the minicomputer controlling the magnetic disks. The result is that users who do bibliographic searches on a particular medical subject may view, at their work station, the tables of contents and title page from selected citations. The result is also that the document image database is accessed and managed using pre-existing features of the bibliographic database and the minicomputer's operating system.
