Three information and analysis centers of the Institute of Science and Technology, University of Michigan, utilize the computer and EAM facilities of the Institutes Computation Department for retrieval of bibliographic references based upon the Computation Departments generalized retrieval system. The three centers are Infrared Information Analysis Center IRIA, VELA Seismic Information Analysis Center 9vesiac0, and Ballistic Missile Radiation Analysis Center BAMIRAC. IRIA utilizes the mechanized retrieval program, which uses an IBM 1401 computer, to produce two listings. VESIAC is in the pilot stage of producing demand bibliographies using the mechanized information retrieval program. BAMIRAC utilizes an optional arrangement of manual, EAM, and mechanized techniques to provide demand bibliographies including abstracts. The development of a generalized retrieval program for all three centers has eliminated the need for the more costly process of maintaining a specialized program for each center. Because of center similarities, this general program fits each centers requirements without significant difficulty.
