Compiled by the Swedish Council for Scientific Information and Documentation, this directory is intended to inform institutions, authorities, and research and development performers of available sources of information about Swedish activities in various fields of research, mainly of a scientific and technical nature. It provides an alphabetical index to subject fields in which numbers following specific terms refer to institutions described in the guide. For each of 81 institutions listed the following information is given: name (both English and Swedish), address, telephone number, name of contact person, subject field, and the type of service provided. Some descriptions also offer sample questions that the institute's services can answer. Also included is a list of data bases that offer a selective distribution of information (SDI) service. Arranged in a tabular form, this section lists the institute, its data base(s), number of references per year, SDI operations per month, and current price per profile for six months (in Swedish kroner). Another section names institutes that perform retrospective searches--the data base used, coverage, subject field(s), search component-search level, price, and remarks. The directory concludes with lists of addresses of research libraries, trade associations, and county agricultural boards. (JD)
