The Library Management and Retrieval System LMARS is an automated retrieval system developed jointly by personnel from the Naval Undersea Centers Technical Library and from Computer Sciences Corporation to provide bibliographic control of the Librarys technical reports collection. LMARS generates a computer-produced catalog consisting of indexes by corporate author, personal author, title, report number, subject, and accession number. In addition to the printed indexes, the LMARS Program also generates the Librarys list of new publications, recall notices for technical reports, custom bibliographies, and Current Alert notices of new acquisitions in specific areas. Several improvements to LMARS are currently in progress, including conversion of the indexes from paper copy to Computer Output Microfiche and the addition of an on-line retrieval capability.
