The rapidly increasing body of knowledge in population education has created the need for systematic and effective information services. Information networking entails sharing resources so that the information needs of all network participants are met. The goals of this manual are to: (1) instill in population education specialists a more favorable attitude toward the use of information; (2) illustrate how information networking facilitates the flow and use of information; and (3) provide guidelines and procedures for establishing an information network in population education. Chapter 1 describes the purposes and the important elements that a network must possess to function effectively. Chapter 2 examines various types of information networks and presents sample models. Reasons for establishing networks are given in chapter 3. Chapter 4 describes criteria for selecting organizations to become members of networks. Steps for establishing an information network are detailed in chapter 5. Chapter 6 outlines the functions, technical services, publication program, information packaging, and other aspects of networks. Chapter 7 describes existing population information networks and provides models to illustrate their structure. (SM)
