Abstract : The Center has continued to screen, acquire, abstract and index documents on the electronic, optical and magnetic properties of materials. Twenty-one hundred fifty selected documents were entered into the EPIC retrieval system, bringing the total holdings to 49,400 items. The Center compiled three formal publications which are to be published as part of the HANDBOOK OF ELECTRONIC MATERIALS series. Three Interim Reports, five Special Bibliographies, and two Special Reports were prepared to meet current user needs. Five Interim Reports were updated and revised. The Center answered 518 non-technical and 82 technical requests. The income recovered from service charges was $15,447. The Center files and computer tapes were shipped to the Thermophysical Properties Information Analysis Center. (Author)
