Abstract : From a management point of view, unnecessary expenditures in duplication of cataloging technical reports exists in the technical libraries of the Department of Defense. This duplication can be eliminated by establishing DOD-wide standards for descriptive, subject, and subject code cataloging, and a standard code and dictionary for computer retrieval. The plan proposed presents the framework for solution of the problem and indicates the potential savings to be realized. (Author)
