    = assaying, edit sheet, engraving, field trial, galley, page proof, proof slip, proofsheet, proving trial, trial, trial print, trial run, tangible evidence, reassurance, test, proof copy, proof, galley proof, proof sheet, lab test, test session, test drive, test run, modelling exercise, performance test, ordeal, audition, tryout.

    Ex: Suppose you have classified, by UDC, the document 'Select methods of metallurgical assaying', class number 669.9.

    Ex: To print MARC record edit sheets, press 'Alt F3', which means to press and hold down the 'Alt' key, followed by pressing the 'F3' key.
    Ex: An art print is an engraving, etching, lithograph, etc. printed from the plate prepared by the artist.
    Ex: Telidon was first demonstrated in 1978, and small-scale field trials videotex and teletext started in 1980.
    Ex: Final editing and corrections are done on this terminal, and galleys are sent to the customer.
    Ex: Catalogue cards are available for each item recorded in the weekly BNB, and for Cataloguing-in-Publication (CIP) records prepared from the page proofs of forthcoming titles.
    Ex: Since it seems clear that many libraries will not be automating, they will have to depend on traditional sources of cataloging data such as cards, proof slips, and book catalogs.
    Ex: Alternatively a library may receive proofsheets of every LC catalogue record, and make a selection from these when items arrive.
    Ex: Bureaux can be useful for proving trials, and the deferment of commitments until a suitable size of data base has been accumulated in the computer system.
    Ex: The intention was to determine which department within each library has the responsibility for arranging trials of products.
    Ex: Trial prints (proofs) of the formes were then made, and compared with the copy from which they had been set.
    Ex: This course can be taken by librarians as well as readers and its trial run started in 1987.
    Ex: The chairwoman of the board had decided that as part of the screening process those who had successfully survived the initial winnowing should furnish the board with tangible evidence of how they might perform on a specific assignment.
    Ex: Such reassurance becomes particularly important if the inquirer has not sampled the file, either in a printed format or in browsing online.
    Ex: The suppliers claim that tests show this to be sufficient for 980 of all entries.
    Ex: One can only point to the efforts being made at BNB to produce cataloguing records as quickly as possible from proof copies if at all feasible.
    Ex: The catalogue has been automated since 1984, and further proof of the library's value and ability to move with the times are shown by its 8,400 plus individual members.
    Ex: Checking is carried out by comparison of the galley proof against the manuscript.
    Ex: These have the advantages of economy, and (if the subscriber desires) selectivity because the records on the proof sheets are divided into broad categories which can be obtained separately.
    Ex: The article 'Search engine showdown' reports the results of lab tests carried out on 7 major World Wide Web (WWW) search engines available free of charge on the Internet.
    Ex: A cognitive walkthrough consists of a re-enactment of a test session in which the user is queried about their movements and decisions throughout the test session.
    Ex: The author presents an evaluation of PatentView in terms of product information, search and retrieval facilities, documentation, and test drive.
    Ex: Test run results show that by taking advantage of the favourable properties of holography shorter response times are obtained.
    Ex: The modelling exercise would indicate which model was most economic and which was most cost-effective.
    Ex: The domains covered in the performance tests for the area of cosmetology were: hair cut, permanent wave, shampooing, wigs and hairpieces, skin care, hair conditioners (scalp and treatment), and manicuring.
    Ex: The article has the title ' Ordeals of a frustrated European intermediary with competitive intelligence searching'.
    Ex: Applicants may receive information regarding these auditions by sending a one-page written resume to this office no later than October 20, 2008.
    Ex: Nearly 200 players submitted applications to be considered for the tryouts and the pool was narrowed to 84.
