Abstract : A keyword indexing system, based on the IBM 1401/1460 KWIC system is presented. The system is specifically designed for keyword indexing of titles appearing in an annual publication by TPRC, Masters Theses in the Pure and Applied Sciences (See for example AD-646 791, AD-646 756, AD-646 742). The system is documented in sufficient detail to be adapted for similar use. Substantial modifications were made to the IBM system, mainly to improve cross-referencing either between an author listing and the keyword listing or within the keyword listing itself, without reference to a third serially numbered listing. This serially numbered listing was eliminated by printing the entire title each time it appears in the keyword listing and by replacing the serial number of each title by the first keyword which appears in the title.
