EUDISED: European Documentation and Information System for Education. Volume I, Report of the Working Party on the Application of Computer Techniques to Educational Documentation and Information
Spangenberg, Kurt
The Council of Europe working party met for 13 days during their visits to Paris, Geneva, Stockholm, London, Frankfurt and Berlin in an attempt to assess current developments in the use of computers in the field of educational documentation and information and to learn about the adaptation of computer techniques in other fields. The report of the working party contains: (1) discussion, (2) conclusions and (3) plans and perspectives. The present use of computers for documentation and information is discussed and it is noted that, in education, no international (world-wide) or regional (European) system exists but rather only isolated national projects. The development of international systems in other fields has demonstrated the possibility of applying computer techniques to multi-national and multi-lingual documentation and information. Some of these international systems are described briefly as examples. The working party proposes a short-term plan (to 1975), a medium-term plan and long-term perspectives. The rapid advance of communications technology and the growing interdependence of research and development in all fields imply the possibility of a merger of documentation and information systems covering specific fields into an all-embracing system for the transfer of data, voice and images.
