Northeast Academic Science Information Center (NASIC). Final Report.
Wax, David M.; Vaughan, Patricia E.
The Northeast Academic Science Information Center (NASIC) was developed to promote the increased and more effective use of machine-readable bibliographic information resources to support the information needs of the academic research community of the Northeast. NASIC was involved with the continued testing and evaluation of available computer-based information services; extensive marketing of information services to a significant portion of the academic community of the Northeast; the development of training materials and programs to enable academic libraries to provide the intellectual interface vital to the effective utilization of machine-readable information services; and the development and implementation of managerial arrangements that would allow for the maximum utilization of computer-based information services in the Northeast consistent with the continuing existence of NASIC as a self-supporting program. A prominent aspect of NASIC was its effective training program as well as the development of administrative and reference materials. (Author/DAG)
