The data files at the Thermophysical Properties Research Center TPRC are stored on magnetic tape and are used for mechanized retrospective searches and to produce the original copy for the Centers Retrieval Guide to Thermophysical Properties Research Literature publication. In the near future, the Center will be connected directly to Purdues computer center via a UHF radio circuit. Partly because of the relatively frequent changes in computer equipment, the Center has limited its use of mechanized processes. The Director believes that at present his staff can perform most searches faster by manual reference than by machine.
