By use of the IBM 7094-7044 computer system, the Technical Information Reference Branch of the Systems Engineering Group produces catalog cards, Selective Dissemination of Information notification cards, and a noncumulative semimonthly accessions list with a KWIC index. The computer program that produces these outputs utilizes information from document unit records entered on EAM punched cards. Since the introduction of mechanized processing, the accessions list with KWIC index has been produced on a regular semimonthly schedule with no increase in effort or manpower on the part of the Branch. Prior to mechanization, the Branch found it impossible to produce a list for distribution even on a monthly basis.
