Abstract:

The last of four separately published volumes describing the basic documentation practices involved in the initial setting up and operation of an Information-Library organisation 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. This volume consists of three main sections. The first is concerned with basic problems in the security control and storage of classified and other sensitive documents. Guidelines are given for setting up procedures for document movements, housekeeping and physical security. The second section gives a general background to organisational factors involved in establishing an information centre. It also discusses accommodation requirements, staffing, budgets and promotional activities. In the final section the basic aspects of the telecommunications and networking are reviewed and information given on the availability and use of on-line data bases in the USA and Europe.
