Abstract:

This project was established in October 1979, to develop a computer- based systematic and ecological computer file data bank for the approximately one million mosquito specimens in the National Museum of Natural History collection. This collection is the largest and most complete mosquito collection in the world and represents a national treasure. The data management system, SELGEM SElf-GEnerating Master, was selected as the primary storagemanagement system. Data recorded on collection forms are submitted to a Honeywell Series 60 Level 6680 computer via a Nixdorf 60055 minicomputer.
