Information Consultation: Indirect Information Services for the Community.
This outline of a model for future expansion of information services to community agencies introduces the concept of "information consultation," which emphasizes the indirect services provided by one agency to another. The article is divided into three sections: (1) a review of mental health consultation, which offers existing, professional indirect services; (2) the development of a parallel definition of information consultation, with a discussion of the range of information consultation activities; and (3) a consideration of which agencies in the community might best provide information consultation services (public libraries and private agencies) and a review of how this would change their role in the community.
