Description : The United States must make better use of its scientific and technical information (STI) resources, if it wishes to be competitive in world markets and maintain its leadership. STI is an essential ingredient of the innovation process from education and research to product development and manufacturing. It is a major product of the $65 billion per year the U.S. Government spends on research and development (R & D); researchers need ready access to STI if they are to stay at the cutting edge. Many issues of our time-health, energy, transportation, and climate change-require STI to understand the nature and complexities of the problem and to identify and assess possible solutions. STI is important not only to scientists and engineers but to political, business, and other leaders who must make decisions related to science and technology, and to the citizens who must live with the consequences of these decisions.

Description : What will future sci-tech libraries be like? Who will be the key players? In this insightful volume, first published in 1992, leaders in sci-tech librarianship reflect on their years in the profession and predict how the sci-tech library will look in ten years. It takes a close look at the revolution in the communication of scientific information and how technology has transformed the process of knowledge delivery and acquisitions. It prepares libraries to react to new channels of scholarly communication that in the future may challenge the viability of the research library. Most importantly, it emphasizes how the rapid pace of change in science, communication, and computers has pushed libraries to aggressively seek to become central to the knowledge formation and transfer process - just to survive. These provocative chapters reveal how sci-tech librarians need to work with scientists and engineers to understand their changing information needs and to participate in the planning and development of new information systems. This book examines all areas of the scientific process that will be affected by change: the way research is conducted, communicated, transferred, stored, and delivered. The changes discussed in this book encompass researchers, librarians, information managers, publishers, and users. Some of the important topics discussed include an in-depth analysis of the information needs of science and engineering and how to best develop the electronic means to meet them; leadership challenges in the future electronic, computer, or virtual library; concern over the quality of information services for scientists delivered by non-scientist librarians; a ten-year prediction for sci-tech librarians and sci-tech publishers; the science library building of the future; the impact of increasingly interdisciplinary scientific research; and the effect of federal policy on sci-tech libraries.

Description : The chronology is a comprehensive bibliography. It contains 512 entries covering a variety of selected literature, reports, policy instruments, and significant events affecting Federal Scientific and technical INFORMATION(STI) from 1945-1990. It includes some publications and events of historic interest which relate to the evaluation of aerospace and aerospace knowledge diffusion. Each entry has been given an item number and items are arranged by columns. To provide an overview of Federal STI development, the entries are generally arranged by date of publication and event. Specific information, including the year of the event, report, or policy instrument; the author; bibliographic number; and sponsor are included. Comments regarding the major findings, recommendations, or significance have been added for each entry. The chronology has seven appendices. Appendix A is a chronology of the DTIC. Appendix B is a chronology of the NTIS. Appendix C is a chronology of NASA STI. Appendix D is an index of Executive Orders. Appendix E is an index of Public Laws. Appendix F is an index of popular common names for studies. Appendix G is a glossary of acronyms.

Description : The objectives of this technical memorandum are 2 fold: to examine the US National Library of Medicine's (NLM) role in the creation and distribution of computerized health related bibliographic information in light of the private sector's presence in this field and the public interest; and to examine MEDLARS' effectiveness in disseminating bibliographic health related information. 5 chapters describe the development, current status, and future plans for MEDLARS databases and online services; discuss system issues related to the effectiveness of MEDLARS in disseminating bibliographic health related information; review private sector health related databases and commercial information services; focus on the considerations underlying the current debate on the appropriate role of the government in information transfer; and analyze the domestic and international implications of changing the range and pricing structure of MEDLARS computerized products and services. Since its inception, MEDLARS has become more sophisticated, accessible, and inclusive, and MEDLARS 2, the library's current system, is utilized more than any other system by health communities in the US and abroad. The development of MEDLARS parallels the evolution in medical bibliography that began in the 1950s with the 1st attempt to apply computer technologies to information processing. The system's 1st database, MEDLINE, was a byproduct of the computerized production of the printed "Index Medicus." "Index Medicus" continues to provide physicians and other health professionals the major access to biomedical literature worldwide. NLM is continuously refining MEDLARS 2 to extend its capabilities. The system has evolved into a complex multiprocessing system that maintains data files, provides online retrieval services, and produces computer photocomposed publications. MEDLARS 2 contains almost 20 databases. The machine readable data tape that is the source of data for MEDLINE is used to produce "Index Medicus" and other publications. MEDLINE, with its related backfiles, is the largest database in MEDLARS and is the most extensively used. Literature selection is used as a quality filter for the indexed biomedical literature database. The selection process is highly structured and involves a critical review of the literature by a panel of expert consultants. In fiscal year 1981, NLM conducted over 2 million online searches, fully 1/3 of all such searchers performed in the US. MEDLARS 2 allows for direct communication with the computer in online, interactive fashion.
