THE DISTRIBUTION AND USE OF SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION

THE DISTRIBUTION AND USE OF SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION A great deal of discussion is proceeding with regard to the distribution and use of scientific and technical information, and theories and proposals on the subject fill the air, but the facts on which these discussions are based appear to be few, or even nonexistent. This paper is the report of an effort to discover, by means of a questionnaire addressed to the readers of publications borrowed from the Science Museum Library, some information on such questions as how references to publications are obtained, what the expected information is required for, and whether, in fact, the publications contain the desired information. No earlier survey of this type has been traced. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Documentation Emerald Publishing

Abstract

A great deal of discussion is proceeding with regard to the distribution and use of scientific and technical information, and theories and proposals on the subject fill the air, but the facts on which these discussions are based appear to be few, or even nonexistent. This paper is the report of an effort to discover, by means of a questionnaire addressed to the readers of publications borrowed from the Science Museum Library, some information on such questions as how references to publications are obtained, what the expected information is required for, and whether, in fact, the publications contain the desired information. No earlier survey of this type has been traced.
