Problems of Information User Needs.
Mikhailov, A. I., Ed.
The approach taken in preparing this collection of papers was to focus upon questions of an applied nature pertaining to the studies of information needs and connected with the theory of scientific information, rather than to approach the problems of user needs in information science from a purely theoretical point of view. The nine papers included in this volume are: Information Requirements as a Basis for the Planning of Information Activities; Reflection on the Relationship between Users and Information Workers; Information System and Its Users; A Pragmatic Approach to Research in Information and Documentation; Encyclopaedic Dictionaries Satisfying User Needs; Scientist's Creative Potential: Clue to His Information Needs; Emergence of Industrial-Line Processes in Science. Ephemeron Teams: New Form of Science Organization; The Study of Specialists' Information Needs as a Precondition for and a Means of Information System Streamlining; and, A Contribution to Research on Information User Needs. (A previous publication in this series, "Problems of Information Science," is ED075030.) (Author/SJ)
