Abstract:

SURF is an EDP-based service for Support of User Records and Files. It is implemented through SDCs MADAM programming language and system for the IBM 1401. It provides printed indexes reflecting the contents of user files. Users of the service index their files, fill out and submit input coding sheets to the service, and regularly receive consolidated index listings. SURF is quite flexible and adaptable to the diverse and changing needs of individuals in organizing, maintaining, and finding what is in their personal or office files. This document describes how to enter and use the service, provides illustrative examples of SURF indexes, and presents recommendations for indexing practice.
