Abstract : The functions and library equipment of the reference and information center are described. Because the work depends on a close cooperation with the scientific technical library, recommendations were made for further improvement of this relationship by a partial mechanication of the procedures through the use of special perforated card-systems (perfor-cards). Cards with marginal perforation which required special handling were inferior to the visual perfocards manufactured by the computer factories and used without any mechanical equipment. The card systems were classified as thematic-or specialty-registers according to their functions. Visual and marginal perfocards were used in both cases. (Author)
