Abstract : Physical description: 1 VHS video; col.; sd.; mono; 16 min.; standard playback sp.; 1/2 in. This video is to educate USAF STINFO program managers, scientists, engineers, and managers on the purpose of the STINFO program. The purpose is two fold: (1) to ensure that scientific and technical information makes the maximum impact on the development of Air Force technology, and (2) to ensure that the scientific and technical information generated under Air Force research and engineering programs makes maximum contribution to the national economy. STINFO program managers throughout the Air Force manage a two-way technical information exchange that is ongoing at all Air Force activities involved with research and engineering efforts. The STINFO program provides for orderly, rapid, and efficient distribution of scientific and technical information produced at Air Force R&E sites. And, in addition, the STINFO program provides access to important information services outside the organization. The three components to an effective STINFO program are the sources who produce the information, the users who need the information, and the professional information specialists who bind the whole system together. This video has been produced in support of the USAF STINFO Program.
