Abstract

The latter part of the 1950s marked the beginning of a rapid rise in the use of mass spectrometry as an analytical technique in several branches of science and as a subject of research. Until 1965 British mass spectrometrists kept in touch with developments by various informal methods, including the production of lists of published articles. Scientists of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, particularly the Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Harwell and the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment (AWRE) at Aldermaston, were especially active in these endeavors. These methods soon became inadequate to cope with this rapidly expanding subject so, after much discussion, a group of mass spectrometrists, representing industrial, academic, and government scientists, approached the British Government suggesting the establishment of a Data Centre.
