Scientific and Technological Information Services in Australia: II. Discipline Formation in Information Management
Middleton, Michael
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v37 n3 p179-199 Sep 2006
This second part of an analysis of scientific and technical information (STI) services in Australia considers their development in the context of discipline formation in information management. The case studies used are the STI services from Part I. A case study protocol is used to consider the extent to which the development of the services may be described in terms of information management domains. Specific reference is made to Australian Agriculture and Natural Resources Online (AANRO), the Australian Medical Index (AMI), Australian Nuclear Science & Technology Information (ANSTI), Australian Transport Index (ATRI), AusGeoRef and its forerunner AESIS, and the Australian engineering database (ENGINE). [For Part I, see EJ992087.] (Contains 40 notes.)
