Abstract : The DoD, in 1955 established the Titanium Metallurgical Laboratory at Battelle-Columbus, expanding the scope and changing the name to Defense Metals Information Center in 1958. The Defense Ceramic Information Center was assigned to Battelle in 1967. The two centers were combined in 1971 forming the Metals and Ceramics Information Center (MCIC). This is the second annual report on the MCIC program, covering activities for the period 1 August 1972 through 31 Jul 1973 -- essentially the FY73 period. This was the first full year of operations under the 'full service charge' policy. The first nongovernment site terminal, providing direct access to the DDC Defense RDT and E system, was installed in MCIC's facilities. After extensive checkout and user training, the terminal went 'on-line' in January 1973, and has proven of substantial benefit to the MCIC mission. (Modified author abstract)
