Science Information Programs: The Argentine Telex Network for Scientific and Technical Information.

This document reports on two projects jointly sponsored by the National Academy of Science (NAS) (USA) and the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Cientificas y Tecnicas (CONICET) (ARGENTINA). The first is the creation of a telex network for scientific libraries and documentation centers in Argentina, designed to improve access to, and delivery of, technical information resources within Argentina as well as from the United States and, eventually, from Europe and other countries in Latin America. The second is the development of a computer-based literature information service to provide academic, governmental, and industrial scientists in Argentina with the benefits of modern information handling methods. Chapter II describes the Telex Network Project in terms of its major components: organization, training program for managers and operators, development of hardware and software, network services, programs for network operators and users, and evaluation. It is supported by a set of appendices which provide detailed information on the organization, operation, and evaluation of the network. Chapter III describes the computer-based literature information service. This project was never fully realized under the joint NAS-CONICET programs. However it did lay the groundwork for Argentina's selection as one of two countries to participate in a UNESCO pilot program to establish national and regional selective dissemination of information services.
