Details are given on the necessary computer processing services required to produce a NASA thesaurus. These services included (1) keypunching the terminology to specifications from approximately 19,000 Term Review Forms furnished by NASA; (2) modifying a set of programs to satisfy NASA specifications, principally to accommodate 42 character terms (versus 36 for the Department of Defense Thesaurus of Engineering and Scientific Terms); (3) inclusion of notes to accompany the headings for the subject category display; (4) expanding the indentions between successive generic levels in the hierarchical display; and (5) formating computer generated reproduction copy in the two-column pagination.
