A Citizen's Manual: Bridging the Information Gap. A Summary of One Pilot Study of Transferring Environmental Information Between the Citizen and the Specialist.
Maher, Patricia A.; Pemberton, Dixie A.
This booklet describes a way to bridge the information gap between the scientist and the non-specialist by outlining a system or network of resources, the people, places, and publications, found for one environmental study. Based on a Title I project to provide educational assistance to local planning boards in the coastal zone areas of Maryland, this booklet is a summary of the year's experience with the Environmental Advisory Committee of St. Mary's County and contains a model for a dynamic process of information transfer. The manual also suggests some techniques to try and some pitfalls to avoid so that the citizen can make the system of resources a dynamic one that will respond appropriately to individual needs.
