ROLES IN TECHNICAL NETWORKS
The process through which research and development laboratories acquire technical information from outside and disseminate it within their confines is examined. Three very different roles played by organizational members in this process are explored and their incumbents compared on a number of characteristics. This paper was originally presented at the Conference on Communication Among Scientists and Technologists, Johns Hopkins University, October 28-30, 1969.
