Hilmar, Norman A.
Remarks in this article were presented at the Conference on Management of Consolidated Research Institutions for Population Research, Washington, D.C., in February, 1970. Study is made of the process by which scientific and technical information in the population field must be identified, collected, stored, retrieved, translated, and disseminated as the world draws upon yesterday to lay a more rational groundwork today for a more promising future tomorrow. Users and audiences, lines of communication, and organizations engaged in dissemination of information in population fields are identified to indicate the complexity and requirements for moving scientific and technical information from the producer to the user. It is stressed that population knowledge be imparted in comprehensible form to those responsible for acting rationally. Lastly, proposals for action in the development of population information centers and resulting services are enumerated. (BL)
