A Five-Year Plan for Information Programs 1971-1975. Information Systems Plan.
American Chemical Society, Washington, DC.
Plans for the American Chemical Society's (ACS) information-oriented activities for the next five years (1971-1975) are summarized. Although the Society is concerned with a great variety of matters, only those programs closely related to chemical information are included in this document. It brings together thinking from all parts of the Society--membership, management, and staff--on how to deal with problems of scientific and technical information transfer in the near future. This Plan is essentially a statement of intent, for it shows the direction and proposed magnitude of the Society's future efforts. It is the first document of this nature produced for the overall ACS and, as such, it contains background and management material which will not all be repreated in subsequent revisions. It will be modified annually in accordance with the ACS planning cycle. Recognizing the importance of working cooperatively with other organizations involved in chemical information transfer, the Society will make this Plan available to the general chemical community for study and comment.
