Abstract : The main purpose of this Specialists Meeting was to disseminate more widely information concerning the demand for, and utilization of, scientific and technical information services in the NATO Countries, and particularly those services operating in the fields of aerospace and defense. The increase in such demand is well-known. What are less well-recognized are the specific nature of these requirements and how Government Departments and Agencies, Universities, and Industrial Organizations are coping with them. The Meeting addressed the structure and operation of defence information centres in the NATO countries; requirements for networking, translation services, and communications access and described current capabilities in the areas of on-line services, data bases, and document delivery systems. Problems encountered in Italy in meeting current requirements were specifically addressed.
