This directory is designed to provide an introduction to educational information and documentation services for specialists in information and educational documentation as well as educational administrators, planners, and researchers, and teachers. Its basic objective is to promote cooperation between such services, thereby increasing the transfer of information and improving their functioning through the use of new information technologies. The directory provides information about the activities of 189 services, of which 171 correspond to national institutions and 18 to regional, subregional, and international organizations. National programs are described for 22 Spanish- or Portuguese-speaking countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Chile, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Spain, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Four appendixes provide information about the current activities of national, regional, and international organizations in the Iberoamerican Community, including: (1) systems for computerized treatment of information and documentation; (2) networks and systems of educational information; (3) INFOLAC, a regional program intended to strengthen cooperation between national networks and systems for information for the development of Latin America and the Caribbean; and (4) Spanish and Portuguese versions of the questionnaire that was used to collect the data for this directory. The second appendix includes descriptions of the U.S. educational network, ERIC; two Unesco regional networks (CARNEID and the Central American Network of Socio-Educational and Cultural Information and Documentation); two European community networks (EURYDICE and EURYCLEE); and INED (International Network of Information in Education), which is sponsored by the Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science and Culture and Unesco. Entries for Brazil and Portugal are in Portuguese; the remaining entries are in Spanish. An index is provided. (BBM)
