For the past decade, the Subcommittee on Information Exchange of the American Committee on Arthropod-borne Viruses has been charged, as one of its missions, with the operation of a registry of data on arthropod-borne vertebrate viruses (arboviruses). This has included the assembly of a working document known as the Catalogue of Arthropod-borne Viruses. The objectives of the Subcommittee and the historical development and operation of the working Catalogue have been described in detail by Taylor. The Information Exchange program was sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation until 1962 and since by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

The working Catalogue has been kept current by quarterly distribution to collaborating institutions of “new” virus registrations and ancillary information in the form of personal communications and abstracts of published articles on the registered viruses. At the close of each year, an annual statistical synopsis has been prepared and distributed to program participants.
