Abstract : The importance of technological information in industry is summed up in the United Nations Industrial Development Organizations(UNIDO) report which states that Small Industry Development Organizations (SIDO) has virtually no library at the moment, and the above-mentioned information resides in the staff member offices. Although SIDO is linked with several institutions throughout the world to collect information, they could use additional information on processes, trade catalogues... (Lafond, 1980). Technology transfer will be enhanced by the technological information system that will collect, process, store, retrieve and disseminate data.
