Abstract : This report covers the COLEX project for the eight-month period from 1 November 1967 to 30 June 1968. Primary emphasis is given to the time period from 26 February 1968 to 30 June 1968. This was the period of time during which the entire new CIRC data base, as it existed on 9 February 1968, was available on-line to COLEX users. Because this data base required more disc storage space than is available on the AN/FSQ-32 computer, it was split into 2 parts. Part I was available to the users on Tuesdays and Thursdays; Part II on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. At the time of implementation of the complete data base, certain significant features were added to the COLEX program including a new mode of searching (by country), and two new modes of qualifying (by classification level and by update).
