Summary of Suggestion Suggester compiled a supplement to the "Index of Bureau of Ships Publications" for use of various CIA libraries. B. Summary of Evaluations on 26 November 1957, CIA Librarian, stated: STATINTL "The CIA Library has very few requirements on Navy, Bureau of Ships for its publications. The index submitted by the suggestor would be of limited use therefore to the Library in its procurement of such Navy publications. It is sug- gested that Liaison Division, OCR, also comment on the value of such an index to it for purposes of this type of procurement. "From the professional point of view, the index is an alpha-numeric one which has been compiled with great care. It is a finding device, when the model number is known, to the appropriate Bureau of Ships publication. There is no subject index, but this is probably not necessary. We believe the use of this index will be limited." On 2 December 1957, Chief, Liaison Division, OCR, STATINTL stated: "The Liaison Division is a channel for the procurement of Navy publications in response to requests from the various components of the Agency. "In connection with the procurement of Navy Publications (Bureau of Ships and other Bureaus), this Division must have proper identification of items desired. The ideal requests should contain both the originator's number (Navy Bureau number) and title of publication; however, these publications may normally be procured by using either the Bureau numbers or the titles and/or the model nomenclature. Bureau of Ships maintains a cross-reference card file and the NAVSHIP number may be obtained by calling the Publi- cations Branch, Bureau of Ships, Extension 62784 and Approved For Release 2000/08/15: CIA-RDP80-00832A000200080029-6 CIA INTERNAL USE ONLY Approv& For Reivase 2000/08/15: CIA-RDP80-0 2A00 00080029-6 Cash Award Sugg.
