United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
Presented are the proceedings from a workshop held in Rabat, Morocco from May 24-28, 1976. The main objective of the workshop was to evaluate progress made in information transfer and prepare a program of action enabling documentation centers created or assisted by UNESCO to cooperate in such areas as staff training, translation activities, and the exchange of publications and other information material. Specific topics discussed were: (1) building up basic resources, collections, and stores; (2) collective retrieval tools to the combined resources of the region; (3) regional information service activities; (4) communication network development; (5) training of users and information officers; (6) machinery for regional cooperation; and (7) prerequisites for effective regional cooperation. Summaries of discussion on each topic are given as well as a summary of 24 recommendations to be used in future programs. A list of participants and observers is appended. (JPF)
