Discusses the general principles for the management of scientific information. These include a broad definition of scientific and technical information, a proper regard for the aims and objectives which such information might serve and an awareness of the infrastructure prerequisites for the development of the efficient management of scientific and technical information. Such management systems are particularly essential in developing countries where most forms of scientific and technological information are in scarce supply. Provides a survey of the development of organizations and arrangements for the management of scientific information in Kenya as an illustration of some of these general principles.
