Abstract : This technical paper presents the analysis of a system for the storage and retrieval of books and documents at the US Army Concepts Analysis Agency 9CAA). It includes both the classified and unclassified technical information centers. The analysis indicated that a microcomputer integrated library system (MIlS) was appropriate for the organization, management , and retrieval of the Agency's book and document collection. Cataloging information from OCLC and DTIC is used to create data bases in dBase III. MILS consists of the following modules: online catalog, acquisition/cataloging, circulation, serials control and management. The online catalog provides access by author, title, subject, series statement, DTIC AD number, organization, publisher, and report number. Boolean logic is available in the title and subject searching. in addition to dBase III software,the system requires Wordstar or another spellcheck program, and FORTRAM 77 Compiler. The hardware requirements are an IBM with hard disk (or compatible), Modem, tapedeck unit, and printer. The dBase III programs are included in the appendixes.
