Information Systems and Networks for Technology Transfer. Final Report.
Page, John; Szentivanyi, Tibor
Results of a survey of the information resources available in industrialized countries which might be used in a United Nations technology transfer program for developing countries are presented. Information systems and networks, organized information collections of a scientific and technical character, and the machinery used to disseminate this information are assessed in the light of their value to such a program. The main bibliographic sources are examined, as are special systems or informal information resources, and a discussion of dissemination systems and networks is followed by conclusions and recommendations for future action. Appendices include descriptions of biology, chemistry, and physics bibliographic systems; multidisciplinary systems; mission-oriented, applied science, and technology bibliographic systems; industry-specific systems; and patents and negotiable technology systems. A complete systems inventory is not intended; rather a sample is provided to assist in further work in developing the program to be charted. (FM)
