Abstract:

The circulation of books and technical reports both classified and unclassified at Picatinny Arsenals Library is mechanized by the IBM 7090 and 1401 computers, producing seven outputs. At present, mechanized preparation of catalog cards, maintenance of catalog authorities, preparation of bibliographies and accessions lists, routing of periodicals, and control of classified reports are under development. Routing of periodicals should be operational early in 1966. An SDI system is under consideration. Work measurement and standard time data studies on the efficiency of the system indicate that the mechanized circulation system is much more efficient than the previous manual one.
