Abstract:

A survey was conducted by personal interview of 14 agencies of particular interest to DDC to assess the national technical information environment as it relates to DDC. The effort was an initial phase of an overall study to develop technical objectives for DDC during the 1978-1988 time period. It is intended to provide a review of facts and issues pertinent to preliminary, short-term interagency interface planning by DDC. A general projection was made of the goals, objectives, operations, services, and structure of the technical information environment with which DDC will most probably interface in the decade 1978 to 1988. Findings are structured in four general categories Technology, Organization Structures and Affiliations, Economics and Marketing, and Scope of Services. The 14 selected agencies were initially contacted by telephone. Either the agency director or chief technical planning officer was invited to participate in the study. No organization contacted declined to participate. The interview was conducted on-site for approximately 1 hour. Author
