Abstract:

Mechanized library functions are performed on the IBM 7094 and 1410 computers using the Approach-By-Concept ABC storage and retrieval system. At present, mechanization is applied only to technical reports. The four outputs are accessions lists with supplementary KWIC Index, catalog cards, the ABC dictionary, and current-awareness notifications. These notifications are provided as a result of the Martin Company contract for analyses of current open-source publications in selected subject areas. Because of file organization problems encountered in the first-generation model of the ABC system, a second-generation model was developed which will become operational in the near future. Periodicals are presently controlled with the aid of EAM techniques with a view to computerization in the near future. The Library staff states that the program has developed smoothly, with problem areas being worked out before they became serious.
