ASIDIC Survey of Information Center Services.
Williams, Martha E.; Stewart, Alan K.
A survey was made as a result of a need identified by the Association of Scientific Information Dissemination Center's (ASIDIC) Cooperative Data Management Committee (CDMC). The committee believed that an informal network of cooperative arrangements between centers could reduce the burden of individual centers and permit greater specialization within centers. Two questionnaire surveys and telephone interviews of ASIDIC members were conducted. Errors in the first survey necessitated the implementation of a revised survey. The survey results include a list of publically available data bases, a tabulation of the number of times each data base was used for current awareness by a center; a list of internally generated data bases; and statistical data documenting the amount and kind of service and equipment used by the centers.
