Abstract : This study is concerned with the technical information services required by personnel of the Air Force Rocket Propulsion Laboratory in support of their R+D activities. An on-site survey consisting of personal interviews and investigation of the documentation and library situation was conducted. Results indicate increased documentation and library services are urgently needed. Specifically recommended are: (1) immediate construction of a centrally located classified vault, (2) rapid assimilation of 8000 scattered documents into a simple but effective automated retrieval system, (3) a more sophisticated system for currently received documents, (4) an active selection and acquisition program, (5) literature search services, (6) remodeling of AFRPL and Chemistry Lab. libraries, and (7) increase of library staff. Survey coverage, results and analysis are presented together with detailed recommendations.
