Abstract:

An RCA 501 computer is used by the Defense Logistics Studies Information Exchange to produce a thesaurus, demand bibliographies, code listings, and the Annual Department of Defense Bibliography of Logistics Studies and Related Documents. A card catalog file is maintained but will probably be discarded within 5 to 10 years. The Exchange has applied for status as a DoD Information Analysis Center it has also been assigned an additional mission of maintaining a DoD Inventory of Technical Data and Related Efforts. Development of the thesaurus will continue, and the Annual Bibliographies and Quarterly Supplements will be printed by GPO from data on magnetic tape as soon as equipment becomes available at GPO. A survey conducted in 1963 indicated that patrons were satisfied with the services provided by the Exchange.
