dc.description.abstractThe goal of efficient management of an organization' s information resource can be accomplished through the implementation and use of a data dictionary. This thesis defines the structure and functions of a data dictionary and analyzes the attempt of the National Bureau of Standards to promulgate a standard software specification for use in the evaluation and selection of data dictionaries in the federal government. Criteria for the "ideal" data dictionary are developed based on the role a dictionary can play in information resource management and ace then used to evaluate four commercial data dictionary packages. Finally, some ideas concerning possible applications for data dictionary technology are presented.
