Israel Society of Special Libraries and Information Centres, Tel Aviv.
The report submitted by the Committee for the Development of Scientific and Technological Information Networks in Israel to the National Council for Research and Development in the Prime Minister's Office is summarized. This bilingual synopsis of the 210 page report is for those desiring an overall view only. The report proposes a framework for the development of existing information systems. The creation of a national information network is proposed and the designation of a national focus for the planning and coordination of the information activity is recommended. It was found that the Israeli information system lags, relatively and absolutely, behind the level of existing services in industrialized, developed countries, and that the present system does not meet the needs of research, industry and management in Israel. The report appendices cover the following subjects: Information Services in Israel, Information Policies in Foreign Countries, and Existing Information Systems in Some Countries. (Author/NH)
