A Model for S&T Information Provision to Small R&D Systems in Developing Countries with Case Studies in Ethiopia and Tanzania. Stockholm Papers in Library and Information Science.
Winkel, Annette; Schwarz, Stephan
By carefully considering the special characteristics of two small African scientific and technical (S&T) information systems for research and development (R&D), this report defines a simple and straightforward model which can be easily implemented in similar situations with a minimum of external support. The model is designed to build up a local (I&D) competency and to broaden the interface between local R&D activities in Africa and international advances. Following an introduction, the report is divided into five sections: (1) General Problems of Information Provision in Small Systems; (2) The User Community for Science and Technology Information; (3) Science and Technology Information Provision: Present Sources and Organization; (4) Proposals for Strengthening Scientific and Technical Information Provision; and (5) Strategic Issues. A four-item bibliography is included. (THC)
