Abstract:

The Army Map Service AMS Library uses a Univac 1004 computer to produce map accessions lists and bibliographies from punched cards containing printed text. Also data on a Map Reproduction Repromat File are punched onto cards and transferred to magnetic tape on a Honeywell H-800 computer. This tape is used to produce a high-speed printout of the Repromat Tabulation semiannually and a monthly listing to update the semiannual tabulation. It is felt that the mechanized Repromat File system should be modified in a number of ways for greater efficiency.
