Abstract : The objective of this work is twofold: First, to develop generalized programs and procedures for accepting large volume information and incorporating it automatically into the files of the Multilist system; second, to demonstrate by a specific example the special advantages of use of the query language, file directories and file Multilist structure. The example is an automated library catalog which has been created in this system by introducing into the mass memory a large collection of Physics articles already used for a similar purpose by the M.I.T. Technical Information Project; however, a program had to be written to change their format. A second, more general program was written which enters items into the Multilist system. (Author)
