Libbey, Miles A.; And Others
The overall objective of the Technical Information Support Activities (TISA) Project is the production of a "Post Commander's Handbook." The handbook will be instrumental in achieving greater utilization of available technical information resources to assist army scientists and engineers engaged in the support of army combat and other operating forces. The input data consists of a large amount of detailed information concerning present operating procedures practiced in the performance of various functions in different Army Technical Libraries. The project is broken up into sixteen separate efforts (modules): (1) visit, observe and describe; (2) mission and long range planning; (3) organization and management; (4) networks; (5) personnel management; (6) budgeting; (7) performance measurement and evaluation; (8) cataloging, classification, indexing, abstracting and file organization; (9) physical processing; (10) identification, evaluation and selection of information sources and services and collection maintenance; (11) current awareness; (12) reference service; (13) circulation; (14) personal files; (15) automation and (16) capping module.
