near the country's inflation rate. The
average cost of a transaction received
was $2.75 in 1979 compared to $2.40 in
1978; the average cost per transaction
completed was $3.67 over $3.27 the
previous year. Average costs were up in
all regions except in the Western.

The Documentation Division of
the Special Libraries Associa-
tion has changed its name to
the Information Technology
Division. Originally founded
in 1949, the Division was
interested in handling the
masses of technical reports
or documents which came out of
World War II and which did not
lend themselves to traditional
library book cataloging.
Over the years, interests have
broaden to encompass the
planning, development and
practical application of
existing and new technology
and systems for the processing
and control of information.
