Abstract:

In order to improve technical information services to four research and development laboratories -- Air Force Materials Lab AFML, Air Force Avionics Lab AFAL, Air Force Flight Dynamics Lab AFFDL, and Air Force Aeropropulsion Lab AFAPL -- the information activities of each individual laboratory are being consolidated into a centralized facility. This consolidation is being accomplished under the auspices of the Air Force Wright Aeronautical Laboratory AFWAL, a new organization which combines the planning and operations activities of the four laboratories. The AFWAL Technical Information Center AFWAL-TIC was chartered a to improve the flow of technical information b to effect economies by large-scale operation and elimination of undesirable duplication c to support the information needs of AFWAL scientists, engineers, and managers d to provide efficient and economical library service e to promote research of and reference to available scientific and technical information and f to operate Information for Industry Offices.
