An Introductory Course on Informatics/Documentation.
Mikhailov, A. I.; Giljarevskij, R. S.
The efficiency of scientific information activities depends on the availability of highly skilled and experienced personnel and on the familiarity of all scientists and engineers with the essentials of information science. In 1963, the International Federation for Documentation (FID) appealed to its member countries to promote the establishment of documentation and scientific information chairs at universities and other institutions of higher learning. Such a chair was set up at the Lomonosov University of Moscow in the academic year 1963/64. One of its purposes is to teach the students basic methods of scientific information work and to make them acquainted with the major tools used in this work. This Guide has been written on the basis of that course. The Guide contains: the text of the lectures, questions for self-checking, tests or examinations, lists of references suggested for further study, curriculum and syllabus of the lectures and practical lessons. The Guide is intended primarily for students in countries still lacking any regular instruction in the discipline, and the initial training of information officers in developing countries.
