Developing Scientific and Technological Information Services in Sri Lanka.
A discussion of objectives for an information and documentation center in science and technology is followed by a brief survey of Sri Lanka's research and development system, and an assessment of library and information services available from a research library network, particularly those developed by the Sri Lanka Scientific and Technological Information Center (SLSTIC). Deficiencies in the system for providing scientific and technological information are diagnosed, and a program is proposed to eliminate these through foreign grants to SLSTIC and a bilateral cooperative scheme. It is emphasized that even an efficient system of information provision does not have a strong impact unless combined with an active program for development of a socio-technological infrastructure capable of assimilating and supporting the information provided. Appendices contain background information on information services in Sri Lanka. (FM)
