First Report of the Working Party on Information Retrieval & Dissemination to the 206th Meeting of Council, 20th March, 1971.
Institution of Engineers, Sydney (Australia).
The working party was established with instructions to recommend a policy on scientific and technical information retrieval and dissemination and on how that policy might best be implemented. This report of the working party defines what the objectives of such an information system should be and discusses the governmental responsibility toward the system as well as the steps necessary for setting up the service. It is recommended that: (1) Council inform the Prime Minister of the need to take urgent action to deal with the information problem and press for the prompt establishment of a National information service; (2) the attention of the Prime Minister be drawn to the need for representation from the user at the professional level; (3) kindred societies be informed of the Institution's action and invited to lend their support; (4) the Institution continue educating members to use its library and other information services and (5) the working party continue its work and report periodically to Council.
