NAVAL ORDNANCE TEST STATION CHINA LAKE CA
Pagination or Media Count:
A series of report literature-searching programs has been written for the IBM 7094 computer at the U. S. Naval Ordnance Test Station, China Lake, for use in the technical library to augment manual literature-searching techniques. In addition to the programs written in direct support of the searching activity, several programs have been written to decrease the time needed for sorting other library records. These auxiliary computer programs include the automatic posting of new reports in the manual coordinate index according to descriptors, the printing of the authority file used by indexers, and the preparation of 3x5-inch catalog cards. This report discusses indexing and literature-searching routines, and the evolution of the computer retrieval system. Programs written for the computer, and the procedures for using them, are presented.
