The Naval Weapons Laboratory NWL Technical Library is redeveloping a mechanized system that uses the IBM 7090 and 1401 computers for the IBM 870 Document Writing System and the IBM 7030 computer STRETCH. Mechanized processes in the IBM 7090 System provide for the establishment and maintenance of a master file for reports and the search of this file to satisfy requests from Library users. The 870, 7030 System is expected to increase the timeliness of accession bulletins and catalog cards, increase the efficiency of Library procedures Descriptive cataloging, Typing, and keypunch are combined into one step, and give the Library more control over procedures e.g., punched cards instead of worksheets will be sent to computer operations, and generation of accessions bulletins and catalog cards will no longer involve computer operations.
