trations are checked. Each station, due to the limited number of copies
of the enforcement records, had to telephone to a central location for
the required information on truck registration. It became obvious that
microfilm copies could be used to advantage in each station. Accord-
ingly, a semi-automatic microfilmer has been obtained and is operated
by the Records Management Division to convert these records to film,
and a Kalvar duplicator has been ordered to enable us to duplicate the
camera film at high speed. Microfilm viewers have been obtained for
each station, and all users have indicated their satisfaction with the
new method.

It is now planned for the Records Management Division to as-
sume responsibility for the duplicating and packaging of microfilm
now being handled by a private company. When sufficient experience
in these operations is acquired and a large enough demand exists, the
State will rent a computer-output-microfilmer. This machine will be
operated for State agencies by the Records Management Division. It is
expected that this accommodation will strengthen the role of the
Records Management Division in furthering the use of standard records
management techniques.

Although participation in the development and implementation of
the records systems described above required considerable time and
effort, our other programs were not neglected. Most of these programs
have been described in detail in previous reports, and information re-
lating to them for this year can be found in the statistical part of this
report. However, it seems appropriate to comment on at least two

The microfilming of the patients' medical records for the Uni-
versity of Maryland Hospital, which was begun last year, has been
continued. Initially this project involved the filming of approximately
55,000 case folders of patients who were discharged or died at the
hospital during I960 and 1961. Funds were provided by the hospital
to hire temporary employees and to rent the microfilm equipment
needed. The work was done under our supervision in the Annapolis
Record Center. Upon completion of the project, the hospital asked
us to film the records for 1962 and 1963 under the same arrangement,
and we agreed to do so.

During the year a microfilm recording program for the land
records in Anne Arundel County was also approved. The microfilm
recording of land and financing records were first begun in 1966 in
