Abstract:

The medical literature is reviewed and descriptions given are various forms of filing systems useful in cataloging and filing medical reprints. The discussion mentions the use of direct and indirect access systems, the marginal punch-sort index, the card catalog index, and the computer-generated index. Coordinated and uncoordinated systems are described. The author gives the characteristics of a good filing system and recommends one for use, using a modified form of the American Board of Preventive Medicine topic list used in board certifying examinations.
