This promotional film is one of several made to advertise the new citation indexing service offered by the Institute for Scientific Information. The ISI was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1960 by Eugene Garfield, a prominent American information scientist and a pioneer in the field of scientometrics. The ISI introduced citation indexing databases for scientific scholarship and research, tracking the citations of previous and related works between scientific papers. In this film, Garfield explains the systems (human and computer) behind the ISI's Science Citation Index and walks through step by step instructions for retrieving articles, searching by subject, and other research questions. The film ends with an overview of important events of the 1960s, placing the ISI's citation index into historical context.
