The Technical Library at the U.S. Naval Ship Missiles Systems Engineering Station USNSMSES employs data processing equipment in the indexing of all materials regardless of subject or format. The indexes are printed out in book form by computer. A statistical inventory of the collection is maintained automatically. IBM 705 and 1401 computers are employed in the mechanized system. Although the costs of the file conversion to the system were high, the large volume of data being processed appears, in the Librarys opinion, to justify the use of computers.
