NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH INFORMATION SERVICES NETWORK

At the 1974 Annual Meeting of the Highway Research Board, 5 panelists discussed the following aspects of the evolving national network of transportation research information services: user requirements, access to project resumes and document abstracts, access to full-text documents, network coordination, and network support. This report presents the views of one of those panelists. He identifies 3 major suggestions for better recognition of user needs: a user conference, a market survey of information users, and evaluation by user feedback. After briefly discussing the first 2 suggestions, he deals in detail with the third topic, and concludes with some proposals for system improvements.
