Scientific and Information Activities of Institute's Libraries.
An analysis of the information service of the Leningrad Institute of Railway Transportation Engineer's libraries led to the following conclusions: Optimal information service for all basic needs of the users in an institute can be ensured by the combined efforts of the libraries and their information services. University libraries should supply timely differentiated bibliographical and factual information to the research institutes and laboratories in many universities first. The content and form of information service at technical institutes should be determined by the requirements of scientists and specialists in their scientific and pedagogical activity. To make information more differentiated, and to cut down on "noise", libraries and information services should provide service only to major projects. The ability of the user to make use of the information system is of prime importance in elevating the efficiency of the Institue's library services. Further improvement of the information service to scientists and specialists of higher education and maximum satisfaction of their requirements is one of the most urgent tasks of the Soviet institute libraries.
