Abstract : The note describes a computer controlled library system for magnetic tape reels associated with the computer BRLESC. All tape reels have a unique name according to cabinet and slot number. Each job that calls for magnetic tape specifies by punch cards which tape reels are needed. At run time this information is copied onto punch cards and becomes input to the library program. (Author)
