Inter-American Seminar on Integrated Information Services of Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centers in Latin America and the Caribbean (SI/ABCD), (Washington, D.C.; 6-17 November, 1972).

The development of an integrated national plan of information services is the topic of the provisional final report of the seminar which is in Spanish. The accompanying five-page declaration, conclusions and recommendations, in English, implicitly include concepts which will permit the drawing up of a national information policy. The Seminar considered, however, that a Latin American and Caribbean Working Group should be created as soon as possible for the purpose of elaborating a document containing, in a hierarchical and systematic way, the elements and bases for the formulation of such a policy, in order to help governments determine their own information policies, according to their circumstances and their needs. To this end, recommendations are made to governments, international organizations and to professionals in the field of library-information science. (Author/SJ)
