Educational and Training Issues in UNISIST.
The educational requirements of a world science information system (UNISIST) are dealt with in the first part of this paper. The educational needs of: 1) the information scientists who design information systems, 2) the information specialists who carry out specific tasks, 3) the scientists who use information, and 4) editors and publishers are outlined. The growing sophistication of the organization, methods and techniques of information transfer are reviewed, and the point is made that new educational programs are needed if UNISIST is to be a useful entity. The second section of the paper discusses the contirubtions which professional societies can make to training and manpower problems and describes the manpower problems of modern science. Following this, specific suggestions are put forth concerning teaching methods, techniques, curricula and educational management. (Author)
