An Introductory Course on Informatics/Documentation.
Mikhailov, A. I.; Giljarevskij, R. S.
In 1963, the International Federation for Documentation (FID) promoted the institution of documentation and scientific information chairs at the universities and other institutes of higher learning in all its member countries. A chair of scientific information was set up at the Lomonosov University of Moscow in the 1963/64 academic year. One of the purposes of the chair is to instruct students in the basic techniques and acquaint them with the main facilities used in scientific information work. A 24-hour optional course in "informatics" is offered to students in the natural sciences; this guide was written on the basics of this course. The guide contains materials for an introductory course in informatics/documentation science including: (1) lectures, (2) checkup questions, (3) tests, (4) lists of references, (5) curriculum and syllabus of the lectures and (6) practical lessons. The guide is intended for students of higher learning in countries which lack instruction in the discipline; it can also be used for the initial training of information officers in developing countries.
