Present Situation of Unesco Resources in Educational Documentation and Information and Its Future Development.
International Bureau of Education, Geneva (Switzerland).
This document provides a broad description of the different documentation and information activities developed by the Education Sector of Unesco, including those undertaken at headquarters, regional offices, and other units of the sector, with the exception of the International Bureau of Education (IBE). A recent decision to reorganize the largely independent documentation and information services of the different units and integrate them into one larger center at headquarters to service the entire sector is noted. Other measures aimed at improving coordination between such a unified center and the other decentralized centers within the sector are also noted, and participants are asked to make suggestions and recommendations for the improvement of Unesco information services provided to member states. The remainder of the report details the documentation and information activities of such units as the following: the Division of Primary Education, Literacy and Adult Education in Rural Areas (ED/PLA); Division of Educational Policy and Planning (EPP) and Division of Financing of Education (EFD); Unesco Regional Office for Education in Africa (BREDA); Unesco Regional Office for Education in Asia and the Pacific (ROEAP); Unesco Regional Office for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (OREALC): European Center for Higher Education (CEPES); Regional Center for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (CRESALC); International Institute of Educational Planning (IIEP); and Unesco Institute for Education, Hamburg (UIE).
