Abstract

Despite a tremendous influx of information into public agencies, and a concern with information processing models of organizations, there is a special variety of information that is often poorly utilized or underutilized-scientific and technical information (STI). This study, of public managers’ orientations toward STI, a study based on data gathered from questionnaires mailed to officials of the Canadian government's Environmental Protection Service, seeks to better understand patterns of STiacquisition and sharing and information channel preferences among users of S TL.
