Microforms in DSIS--An Information Center's Experience with Microforms.
Currie, John D.
Since 1965 DSIS (Defense Scientific Information Service) has reproduced copies of microfiche documents received from outside sources for its customers. In 1970, in accordance with long-range plans to use microfiche as the back-up to an automated information retrieval system as a quick and inexpensive way of supplying reports identified by a computer. DSIS began converting DRB reports received in paper form into original microfiche. Recently, use has been made of 16mm microfilm cartridge systems containing indexes to reports processed by other information centers and usually held as microfiche. The report examines past experience, current projects, and future plans of DSIS. (Author)
