Abstract : This paper discusses the approach to automation taken by the AFCRL Research Library, applicable to libraries in general. A brief review of the current market of equipments and techniques is followed by guidelines this library will use in order to effect total systems automation. The AFCRL Research Library monograph processing system is discussed as an application of the techniques described. It covers the preliminary search routines using an MP-3 Polaroid camera, the cataloging routines making use of various machine-generated authority lists, the bibliographic encoding and catalog-card generation using tape typewriters, and the special-purpose data-processing device, the Itek Crossfiler, developed for this library.
