The Concept of the Information Sub-system: Further Education of Teachers.
The European Information Centre for Further Education of Teachers (EIC-FET), located in Prague, Czechoslovakia, was set up in 1973 to acquire and organize information on professional growth of teachers. The information is collected to serve as a basis for in-house administrative needs and for the program implementation, innovation, and integration needs of users. The users can be classified as university and research organizations, school administrative authorities, international educational organizations, and other information and documentation institutions concerned with the further education of teachers. The EIC-FET is affiliated with the Charles University (Prague, Czechoslovakia), and operates in accordance with the policies of Czechoslovakia's Ministry of Education. Cooperative arrangements are being used both nationally and at the international level through the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. A computerized system makes abstracting and indexing services available to cooperating institutions. For this purpose, a multilanguage thesaurus of educational keywords is being compiled in conjunction with other socialist countries. EIC-FET selects and processes teacher education materials that are in Czech, Russian, or English, and which are based primarily on practices or activities in socialist European countries. Within the limits defined by the lack of international coordination in computer hardware, EIC-FET provides bibliographic records, abstracts and annotations, and scientific reports. EIC-FET also regularly publishes proceedings, collections of papers, bibliographies, and a newsletter. (FG)
