The Technical Information Center in Oak Ridge, Tennes

sec, has been the national center for scientific and techniical information for the Department of Energy (DOE) and

its predecessor agencies since 1946. In developing and managing DOE's technical information program, the Center places under bibliographic control not only DOEoriginated information but also worldwide literature on scientific and technical advances in the energy field and announces the source and availability of this information. Whereas the literature of science is emphasized, coverage is extended to DOE programmatic, socioeconomic, environmental, legislative/regulatory energy analysis, and policy-related areas. To accomplish this mission, the Center builds and maintains computerized energyinformation data bases and disseminates this information via computerized retrieval systems and announcement publications such as abstracting journals, bibliographies, and

update journals. Direct access to the Center's most i

comprehensive data base, the Energy Data Base, is available to the public through commercial on-line bibliographic retrieval systems. The Energy Data Base and many of the Center's energy-related data bases are available to DOE offices and contractors and to other government agencies via DOE/RECON, the Department's online information retrieval system. The Center has developed and maintains systems to record and communicate energy-related research-in-progress information, to catalog official DOE issue-and-policy documents, to maintain à register of DOE public communications publications, to track research report deliverables from DOE contractors, and to test and make available DOE-funded computer software programs with scientific and management applications. The Center also maintains a full-scale publishing capability to serve special publication needs of the Department. To effectively manage DOE's technical information resources, the Center's program is one of continual development and evaluation of new information products, systems, and technologies.

Energy Abstracts for Policy Analysis (EAPA), while embracing all phases of energy analysis and development, is limited primarily to nontechnological or quasitechnological articles or reports having significant reference value. This selectivity in scope and coverage of EAPA is effected to emphasize the following: programmatic efforts; policy, legislative, and regulatory aspects; social, economic, and environmental impacts; regional and sectoral analyses, institutional factors, etc. Note: the "hard" scientific and technical literature is abstracted for the most part in DOE Energy Research Abstracts (ERA) and is included in the DOE Energy Data Base.

Selection for EAPA is based strictly on content (substantive articles) and is made from Congressional committee prints; Federal agency and department reports; regional commission and state and local government reports; periodicals, including

including trade journals and newsweeklies; conference proceedings and/or conference papers, books, including manuals, directories, encyclopedias, etc.; and documents from industrial firms, private institutes and foundations, educational institutions, societies, associations, etc.

EAPA is available on an exchange basis to universities, research institutions, industrial firms, and publishers of energy information. Inquiries should be directed to the Technical Information Center, P.O. Box 62, Oak Ridge, Tennessee 37830.

EAPA is available to the public on a subscription basis from the Superintendent of Documents, U. S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D. C. 20402. The subscription rate for the 12 monthly issues plus the annual index is $70.00 for domestic subscribers and $87.50 for subscribers outside the North American continent. The annual index is also available separately to subscribers for $10.00 (domestic) or $12.50 (outside the North American continent). A single issue costs $6.00 (domestic) or $7.50 (outside the North American continent).

5411 CANLICNSV-TY-67) Oasis code application to pro posed Argonne Nationa Laboratory cogeneration plant. Bingman, P.J.; Leslie, N.P. (Argonne National Lab., IL (USA)). Tun 1981. Contract W-31-109-ENG-38. 135p. NTIS, PC A07/MF A01. Order Number DE81025869.

A computer program, OASIS (Optimization and Simulation of Integrated Systems), has been developed by Argonne National Laboratory to provide detailed representations of the processes and operating conditions in central plants. It contains an extensive library of generic component subroutines that model representative equipment using part-load performance curves. New technologies may be modeled by adding FORTRAN written subroutines in the job input stream. The equipment performance and economic data already included are easy to modify, so that almost any plant configuration and set of operating conditions may be modeled. The use of OASIS is described for an evaluation of the proposed cogeneration plant at Argonne National Laboratory.

The coal-mining industry is subject to a myriad of tax laws, regulations, and rulings. Recent developments in the area of coal mining have resolved some past conflicts and further confused others. Nevertheless, a taxpayer involved in any aspect of coal mining should carefully analyze both tax and nontax implications related thereto. There can be benefits for the taxpayer who considers the structure of the transaction, the timing and method of acquisition, classification of exploration and development stage costs, and the interaction of depletion, Section 631(c), and the concept of economic interest. 71 references.

Technical report literature is also indexed using report numbers. This index includes information on where individual reports may be obtained. Patents and conference papers are indexed here as a matter of convenience. When a report is supplied under an Order Number, that number is included in the availability statement. An Order Number - Report Number Correlation is included for convenience.

Four indexes are provided for approaching the contents of each issue of Energy Abstracts for Policy Analysis (EAPA). These indexes are cumulated annually. Each index is preceded by an introduction that details the organization of the index and the principles by which it was compiled. The reader is referred to these introductions for information not found in the index examples that follow.
