Scientific and Technical Information in Canada, Part 1.
Science Council of Canada, Ottawa (Ontario).
This publication contains Part I of the report by a study group dealing with the information requirements of the scientist, technologist and technician in Canada. These include such things as economic, statistical, and engineering data, medical and pharmaceutical information. In examining the many facets of the creation, handling, and use of scientific and technical information, the study group was concerned with services and users in the industrial, government, and university sectors; information handling techniques and types of sources, specifically library and international resources; education and training of information personnel and the user; and the economics of information handling. Detailed discussions of these areas are published separately as Part II of this report. The individual Chapters of Part II (available as LI 002 427 through LI 002 433), reflect the views and recommendations developed by the subgroups acting independently. Summaries of the subgroup reports and their full recommendations are given in the appendices to this section of the report. The recommendations in Part I cover only the major actions required to implement the findings of the study group. (Author/NH)
