Abstract : Training problems which might arise due to establishment of new Department of the Army Scientific and Technical Information (DA STINFO) systems were examined with respect to projected manpower requirements, personnel supply, and training requirements. It was concluded that (a) future needs for system designers can be met through the use of contractor and senior DA STINFO personnel; (b) future needs for administrators and operators of STINFO centers and systems will not be great, provided that the DA can retain those persons now in the DA STINFO system; (c) training of STINFO system administrators and operators can be improved, and suggestions were made regarding the use of handbooks, job aids, and monthly publications' (d) training of administrators and operators for new STINFO systems should await the development of fairly precise specifications for these systems; and (e) the need to train and/or familiarize 'users' of STINFO systems is a crucial problem which needs immediate attention. User training procedures and materials, to include the development of user handbooks and job aids, are discussed. (Author)
