Sub-Unit Publications [series]

The Sub-Unit Publications series contains materials published by the Merit Computer Network, two of the University's operating systems--the Michigan Terminal System (MTS) and the University of Michigan Executive System (UMES)--and the University of Michigan Computing Center Lecture Series.

 
Merit Computer Network [subseries]

The bulk of the Merit Computer Network subseries is composed of manuals for users of the network, such as the Merit Computer Network User's Guide from 1973 and 1975, and the serial manual, User's Memo, which was published in 1976 and 1977. A Theoretical Study of Store-and-Forward Message Switching in the Merit Computer Network, from June of 1975, may be found under the heading of Reports.

Merit published a newsletter Merit Network News, beginning in 1986, which was bound with U-M Computing News. The researcher will find them in the Unit Publications series, under Newsletters. There were four issues each year. The newsletter's name was changed in 1990 to Michnet News, and continued to be bound with U-M Computing News until the next year. When U-M Computing News was replaced by ITD Digest in 1991, Michnet News followed, and volumes 7 and 8 may be found in the Information Technology Division record group, in ITD Digest volumes 1 and 2.

Michigan Terminal System (MTS) [subseries]

The Michigan Terminal System (MTS) subseries is mainly composed of manuals, as well, including four versions of the MTS Operators Manual, the User Guide Series (which changed to the MTS User Guide Series after 1981), and several others which describe either the basic procedures of MTS, or the details of programs run on the system, such as FORTRAN, SNOBOL and Taxir. The manual series MTS: The Michigan Terminal System, was published from 1967 through 1991, in volumes 1 through 23, which was updated and reissued irregularly, and occasionally changed names. For instance, eleven editions of Volume 1 were published, under the name Volume 1 in 1967, Volume 1: MTS and the Computing Center in 1971 and 1973, and Volume 1: The Michigan Terminal System from 1976 through 1991.

The MTS subseries also contains an almost complete run of the MTS Newsletter, which was published from 1971 through 1987, every other month in the beginning, then later, three or four times a year.
