Recommended Systems for the Incremental Automation of the Morgue of "The Daily Texan."
Voges, Mickie; And Others
A modular program is recommended for automation of the clippings file of "The Daily Texan" (student newspaper of the University of Texas at Austin). The proposed system will lead ultimately to on-line storage of the index, on-line storage of local, staff-written news stories from the previous twenty-four months, micrographic storage for backup and retrospective search, and rapid retrieval techniques for accessing both the computer-stored articles and micrographically-stored articles. The system can be implemented on the PDP11/15 if the appropriate software and storage capabilities are available. It will provide several improvements to the present system including more complete indexing of news stories, more efficient document retrieval, more reliable file integrity, and easier access by the "Texan" staff to morgue files.
