Across All Borders: International Information Flows and Applications. Collected Papers.
Born out of more than 20 years of working within international information development and exchange projects, conferences, and consultancies, this collection of papers offers insight into the many issues involved in the international exchange of information and ideas. The information contained in this work helps to build a bridge between the literatures of developing countries and those of industrialized countries, as they attempt to understand the relationship between economic, social and cultural developments and the applications of information in its infinite forms and variations. The book is divided into six sections: (1) Information and National Development; (2) Human Resource Networking; (3) Problem Solving and Information Counseling; (4) Information Policies; (5) Education, Training and Professional Development; and (6) The American Transnational Corporation and Information. Eleven figures supplement the text. A 20-page list of further readings is provided at the end of the book, as well as name and subject indexes. (AEF)
