Abstract : To update and streamline informaton retrieval at the Navy Experimental Diving Unit (NEDU) a computerized Key-Word-In-Context (KWIC) index system was developed. The KWIC system permits the user to retrieve NEDU research and evaluation reports by report number, author, and/or 'keyword' in title. The KWIC computer programs developed by the International Business Machine Corporation (IBM) were so successful in this application that they are now being applied to all of NEDU's microfilmed research files.
