Abstract: THE FIRST CHAPTER INCLUDES A DEFINITION OF KEY TERMS WHICH WILL BE USED THROUGHOUT THE REMAINDER OF THE REPORT. CHAPTER 2 PROFILES THE POTENTIAL CLIS USERS. FOR PURPOSES OF THIS ANALYSIS, 'POTENTIAL USERS' INCLUDES ALL LABORATORIES THAT HAVE RETURNED A LABORATORY INFORMATION FORM. INCLUDED IS A LIST OF RESPONDENTS BY GEOGRAPHIC AREA (THE FBI'S UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING GEOGRAPHIC AREA DESIGNATORS HAVE BEEN USED) AND AN EXPANSION OF THE STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF THE SIZE OF RESPONDING LABORATORIES PRESENTED ORIGINALLY IN NCJ-30453. CHAPTER 3 DISCUSSES EACH APPLICATION AREA CARRIED FORWARD FROM VOLUME I IN RELATION TO GENERAL DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS INCLUDING: GENERAL OPERATING FUNCTIONS; DATA BASE REQUIREMENTS; PROCESSING FUNCTIONS; COMMUNICATIONS; MAINTENANCE; AND INITIAL IMPLEMENTATION. THE NEXT CHAPTER SUMMARIZES THE SYSTEM RESOURCES NEEDED TO SUPPORT CURRENT APPLICATION AREAS AND ANTICIPATED FUTURE REQUIREMENTS OF CLIS AS CONCEPTUALIZED. THE FINAL CHAPTER PRESENTS THE DESIGN ALTERNATIVES FOR CLIS COMMUNICATIONS, DATA STORAGE, PROCESSING, AND MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS. SEE ALSO NCJ-28032 (AN OVERVIEW), 30453, 30455, AND 30456.
