Abstract: A program is presented which runs on an IBM 1620 computer and produces punched cards that activate an IBM 870 Document Writing System to type catalog cards in upper- and lower-case characters. Another program produces punched cards which instruct the 870 to type a library accessions bulletin. The programs are written in FORTRAN II and are described in detail. Estimates of costs and production times are included.
