Abstract : The bibliography generation technique has proved to be an important tool for the rapid compilation of large numbers of searchable literature citations. The KARDIAK/MEDITERM bibliography demonstrates that it is unnecessary to employ a specialist in the field to index citations using this system. The keypuncher/indexer is able to function efficiently with minimal instructions. Initial input on paper tape with subsequent conversion to punched cards alleviates the problem of error correction and verification while providing a hard copy record of all input documents. Standard information storage and retrieval computer programs were used for this task, with the exception of the 'Yellow Dog' FORTRAN language program for the generation of header cards. S-C 4020 formats were used which provided the most convenient and easy-to-read layout for the dual dictionary as well as the citation and author listings. (Author)
