The Defense Technical Information Center DTIC provides information services to the Army, Navy, Air Force, other Department of Defense DoD agencies, other Government agencies, and Government contractors. In order to provide this information, DTIC needs to anticipate the information needs of its users. An understanding of the flow of scientific and technical information STINFO within DTIC user organizations is necessary to provide the best services. This paper was undertaken to trace the flow of STINFO within the Department of the Armys research laboratories and to determine how the Army researcher gathers information. Recommendations are made as to how DTIC can better serve the information needs of the Army.
