National Security Industrial Association, Washington, DC.
The meetings were set up to find ways to overcome the barriers that regulate or reduce the flow of scientific/Technical information and data to the user. Giving the user what he needs, when he needs it, and at a cost he can afford is the basic challenge faced by information services. Obtaining information depends on: (1) personal habits; (2) quality of information services available; (3) types of retrieval systems as managed by government agencies; (4) the type, speed and cost of services provided; (5) regulatory controls placed upon literature and data and (6) operating policies of the information agencies. The quality of information/data products and services depends on: security controls, proprietary rights, qualified users, paying customers, available budgets, machine capabilities and capacities, programming time, coding input, handling output, printing and distributing information, and management policies.
