A Meeting of Minds.
Innovation Abstracts, v5 n18 Jun 17 1983
Throughout the country, organizations of intellectuals (most of them called Independent Scholars' Roundtables) meet to discuss issues of importance to them. The participants share knowledge, problem-solving methods, and experiences. The groups may be organized around a particular discipline or they may be interdisciplinary. They are typically open to all interested parties, although some have adopted more stringent criteria for membership. Individuals and groups frequently develop programs to bring their interests to the larger community. There are presently about 40 such organizations with a total membership of about 1,500. The address and telephone number of the Independent Scholarship Project director are provided. (DC)
