At the workshop, better management through strategic planning of information and consultancy was discussed as one way in which developing and Eastern European countries could tackle the complex information problems they are facing during the transition to a market economy. The sixteen papers in this volume are grouped into three basic categories: those dealing with an overview of strategic information planning (SIP)-information resource management (irm) concept, or some important aspect of it in applied business or other organizational setting; those dealing with case studies in a national, institutional, or private enterprise setting; and those dealing with the education, training, and learning aspects of transferring sip-irm knowledge to others in academic or on-the-job settings.

National information policies : a review of the situation in seventeen industrialised countries, with particular reference to scientific and technical information by Michael Hill( Book )

3 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report reviews the information policies that are concerned with, or relevant to, the scientific and technical information of 17 industrialized countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany (Federal Republic), Hungary, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Two other countries, Belgium and Sweden, are briefly mentioned. Not all of the policies and practices are examined in the same detail since the objective was to enable applicable lessons to be drawn from the comparisons. The range of information policies currently in operation in the industrialized countries are examined in terms of their long evolution as well as new technological developments and geographical, social, and political influences in each country. The information policies of individual countries are examined to determine how they are established, how awareness of them is disseminated, and how they are implemented. The 107 references listed are in Czechoslovakian, English, French, German, Hungarian, Russian, and Spanish. Additional materials from Czechoslovakia and France are listed separately. (MAB)

From informal gatekeeper to information counselor : emergence of a new professional role by Marta L Dosa( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Borrowed from the literature of more than two decades ago--when it alluded to key communicators within organizations--the concept of "gatekeeper" is reintroduced in this report. The role of information counselors, who, like informal gatekeepers, take part in liaison activities, networking, advising, information filtering, transmitting, and repackaging, is described as being a type of professional gatekeeper, with current emphasis on adding value to user-oriented information systems and services. The transition to a new role within organizations is discussed, focusing on: trends that necessitate the new role, the shift of emphasis in systems design to user involvement, mastering the complexity of infrastructures, interfacing with special groups of users, and strengthening the process of evaluating information systems. Highlighted functions of the information counseling role include increasing the value and decreasing the cost of information products and services to users. Assessing information needs in developing countries, cross-national cooperation, and transborder data flow are key policy issues focused on. It is recommended that: (1) pilot research and demonstration projects be carried out to identify and test the information counseling model; (2) a job profile be formulated based on user demand inventories; (3) corresponding guidelines be constructed; (4) education and training requirements be developed; and (5) the results of such study be disseminated.
