Abstract : An urgent need for creating better methods of assembly and storage of information is bared. A system of peripheral gear as a single unit of large capacity, and high speed input-output capability is considered. The most suitable complex for collation, storage and net retireval are the storage units on magnetic cards are more advantageous for a number of reasons. In storage units using MK, the cards are changed automatically thus assuring rapid arbitrary selection, where-as in units with removable magnetic disks the change is done manually and takes more time. An increase in the immediate-access storage for magnetic cards is less costly than such an increase for the magnetic disks; there also are other advantages. As a result of many comparisons a conclusion was reached that the most promissing design of a hardware package for collation and storage of information are magnetic cards.
