Abstract:

This thesis designed and compiled an electronic index system to catalog articles in military, transportation, and aviation periodicals published during the period 1947 through 1957 and pertaining to transportation and its relationship to the U.S. Air Force. The system consists of a Master Index giving the title, author, publication, and date of over 1,000 articles, with abstracts of selected articles. Separate alphabetical Author, Title, and Subject Indexes are cross-referenced to the Master Index through a simple numerical code system. The indexes are stored on 5-14 inch flexible magnetic diskettes which are placed in pockets fastened into the front and back covers of the copy of the thesis kept in the Library of the School of Systems and Logistics, Air Force Institute of Technology. The articles indexed are those dealing with transportation modes and vehicles owned, operated, used, contracted, and leased by the Air force operations. In addition, source pertaining to the interface of Air Force airlift operations and operations of other services are included.
