READ Resource Detail - Interdependencies/Interfaces Help

Overview
The Interdependencies/Interfaces to Other Info Resources tab page allows a READ user to enter or view the interfaces that the information resource has with other information resources. For each interface, an information resource can be identified by clicking the binoculars and searching for it by name or acronym. If the interfacing information resource is not found, the user may request the creation of it (through the link on the Home page). Once the request has been submitted, the user may create the interface and choose the unapproved new information resource.
