Abstract:There were, however, some organizations including a handful of libraries, that were already deeply involved, if not with electronic data processing, with the growing information handling problem. Among these pioneers was the Army Medical Library, previously known as the Library of the Surgeon General of the U. S. Army, and which, since 1956, has been called the National Library of Medicine. Having mentioned the topic of my presentation, I wish to make clear that in this paper I shall not be describing data processing activities carried on throughout the National Library of Medicine. Instead, I shall be restricting my discussion to the application of these new techniques to the Library's indexing program, where they have been given most attention to date.
