National Foundation for Educational Research in England and Wales. Information Services.
Davies, Jim
The National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) information services are described and examined from the viewpoints of "networks and networking"; the genesis, growth and functions of "Information Analysis Centres"; the "invisible college"; and the "gatekeeper" concept. Within the description, a distinction is made between the activities of the Information Division and the total information services of the Foundation. The Information Division provides core information services, but the examination of NFER's role in the dissemination of information is not restricted to this division's work, as it is held that a major activity of the Foundation and its publishing arm is the dissemination of information. It is concluded that these developments and concepts have firmly established themselves within the overall information services of the NFER. (Author/AP)
