The following two titles are in the Special Collections Department Collection
From handwritten notes by Mary Boccaccio:
"From a 1980 Daily History Report" (which is in the Javits Collection--Microfilm Collection Files.
1. To conform to the tendigit Senate computer system, were four digits added at the beginning of each sixdigit set? Is there a key to how these four digits were assigned?
2. a. Under topics discussion: some numbers, eg. 595, etc., re these computer form letters ...; is there a list of what those numbers/digits mean?
b. Others are prose topics, eg. U.S. Embassy, etc. Is there a list of these topics or a catalog?
3. Some of the tendigit documents have the last twodigits conforming to your January 2, 1981 memo to Bob Locke on the CMS numbering system. Other numbers from this report appear to have a different set up--no apparent reference in the tendigits to the CMS digits. How were these numbers set up? Apparently in reference to computer form correspondence number in "under topics discussed."
From a July 24, 1984 handwritten note by Mary Boccaccio:
- Talked with Carl Jansson of the Senate Micrographics Studio. He says
that all the microfilm was turned over to Lonnie Taylor, Senator Javits'
Office Manager, and sent to Stony Brook.
- Still unable to locate name and topic index reels for 1976, 1977,
1979, and 1980.
