Abstract:

Application of new technology to the management of scientific and technical information relies upon a thorough grounding in basic concepts. The acquisition, storage, retrieval and dissemination of material is becoming ever more complex and is a process which requires an understanding of how knowledge is perceived by the end user, the mechanics of data transfer and the principles of responsible information exchange. In addition, the proliferation of information and the variety of media currently available make clear objectives and practical solutions essential. The AGARD Technical Information Panel TIP has produced a number of publications aimed at establishing, and raising the standard of, information management. This Seminar brings together expert speakers to update the information in these publications and to contribute towards the further improvement in basic documentation practices. This Seminar, sponsored by the Technical Information Panel of AGARD, has been implemented by the Consultant and Exchange Programme.
