Dosa, Marta L.
This report is divided into two parts: recommendations for the proposed information center and a description of the feasibility study. The rationale for the center, current information problems, and the problems of the information seeker are discussed, and the proposed program is outlined. Recommendations are made concerning the center's role, subject scope, aspects of international environmental policies, interfaces with other systems, potential users of the center, functions of the center, proposed in-house database, information use seminars, information resources, and management of the center. Aspects of the feasibility study include specific objectives, time table, conceptual framework, definitions, levels of information service, characteristics of environmental literature, and assessment of need for the proposed center. Appendices present the report on the information need assessment study, which contains the questions used in the survey, and a list of additional appendices that were not reproduced due to cost limitations.
