Abstract : The first of four separately published volumes describing the basic documentation practices involved in the initial setting up and operation of an Information-Library organization to provide defence-aerospace information services. The focus is on a practical, rather than theoretical, approach for both the senior person setting up a new system, as well as junior staff who may be using the manual as a training aid. The three sections in this volume mainly cover the experience of documentation organisations in the USA and provide an overview of the processes and techniques involved. Examples and guidelines for implementation are given and staffing requirements are discussed. This AGARDograph was prepared at the request of the Technical Information Panel of AGARD and publication of the remaining volumes will be spread over the next three years.
