PUNCHED CARD SYSTEM NEEDN'T BE COMPLEX TO GIVE COMPLETE CONTROL.
BEMIS, HAZEL T.
AT WORCESTER JUNIOR COLLEGE, MASSACHUSETTS, USE OF A MANUALLY OPERATED PUNCHED CARD SYSTEM HAS RESULTED IN (1) SIMPLIFIED REGISTRATION PROCEDURES, (2) QUICK ANALYSIS OF CONFLICTS AND PROBLEMS IN CLASS SCHEDULING, (3) READY ACCESS TO STATISTICAL INFORMATION, (4) DIRECTORY INFORMATION IN A WIDE RANGE OF CLASSIFICATIONS, (5) EASY VERIFICATION OF STUDENT RECORDS, (6) ELIMINATION OF EXCESSIVE PAPER WORK, AND (7) ACCURACY IN TUITION ACCOUNTING. USE OF MULTIPLE COPY FORMS DESIGNED FOR USE IN ALL STEPS OF A GIVEN RECORD PROCESS HAS ELIMINATED MUCH DUPLICATION OF EFFORT. ADVANTAGES OF THE SYSTEM ARE REDUCTION OF CLERICAL TIME FOR COLLECTING DATA AND TABULATING STATISTICS, READY ACCESS TO ALL RECORDED INFORMATION AT ANY STAGE OF PROCESSING, A HIGH DEGREE OF FLEXIBILITY NOT COMMON IN AUTOMATED SYSTEMS, AND REDUCTION OF ERRORS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY BUSINESS," VOLUME 37, NUMBER 2, AUGUST 1964. (WO)
