The Organization of American States and its Potential for Collaboration in the Improvement of Scientific Documentation in Latin America.
Shepard, Marietta Daniels
The purpose of this paper is to describe the profound changes which have been made in the organic structure of the Organization of American States (OAS) and in its operations in recent months and how these changes lend themselves to more effective efforts to aid the member states in the development of more adequate documentation services and in cooperative efforts for regional activities. The changes are specifically related to: (1) the ratification of the "Protocol of Buenos Aires" which revised the Charter of the Organization; (2) the effects of the Alliance for Progress in national planning; (3) the provision of special funds for education and science and (4) the reorganization of the Secretariat and the reorientation of its programs and activities.
