The Role of the Information Center in the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science Program for the Improvement of National Information Services. Related Paper No. 13.
Weisman, Herman M.
The role of the information center in the National Program for Library and Information Services is projected. The various types of information centers are identified and defined, and the generation, processing, communication, and use of information and knowledge are reviewed. A plan is given for the integration of existing information centers into the national program, including operational and qualitative standards for participation. After an analysis of problems that might arise and suggested solutions, the benefits that might be derived from the presence of an information center constituency in the national program are indicated. A chart comparing the functions of the major systems of information services and diagrams of the processes of information transfer are appended. (Author/PF)
