A Brief Guide to Sources of Scientific and Technical Information.
This guide is a recapitulation and refinement of the substantive content of a one-and-a-half day course which was given before three groups of Federal scientists and engineers during the Fall of 1967. The course was developed under the sponsorship of the Panel on Education and Training of the Committee on Scientific and Technical Information (COSATI), with financial support from the U.S. Office of Education. Its purpose was to train and inform working scientists and engineers as to the most direct and efficient means of seeking and acquiring work-related information. Subjects covered include: (1) information directories and source guidance, (2) information on ongoing research and development, (3) current or recent research and development results, (4) past research and development results, (5) major American libraries and resource collections, (6) organization of personal index files, (7) relationship of the scientist and engineer to his information tools and mechanisms and (8) methods of obtaining certain types of Government documents.
