A study on the use of DOD form 1473, as required by DOD Instruction 3200.8, indicates that a 26.3 percent of DOD activities and their contractors are not using it b the descriptive cataloging when included on DOD form 1473 was judged to be of poor quality in 5.4 percent of all DOD reports c when DOD form 1473 was included in DOD reports, 12.9 percent were judged to be of either poor quality in the subject cataloging assignment of key words, or provided no key words at all. Positive steps should be taken by DOD to obtain compliance in the use of DOD form 1473. Application of DOD form 1473 to NASA and AEC reports should be negotiated by DOD, in order to realize the full potential of a significant cost saving in technical library operations.
