AN GR CULTURAL I NFOMT ION NETWORK

Jan Kennedy, Chief
Le-di.ng Bry;c ,, L Lb)e-,6 -qeperat ions Division


In November 1979, Technical Information Systems (TIS) sponsored an Agricultural
Information Conference. It provided a discussion forum for exploring the infor-
mation needs of agriculturalists and ways in which cooperative systems make
possible the integration of state and local information sources. The Con-
ference program dedicated one morning to the subject Cooperative Library
Systems and presented the opportunity to address a cooperative library system
which has been long in the making and is probably the most fundamental of all, a
national agricultural sciences information network.

Over the years a great deal of thinking, discussion, and work have been done
toward development of the network. The desirability of such a network has been
forcefuly reaffirmed by commitment of Congress to the concept. The following
brief chronology gives an idea of the activity to this time.


-1967 Planning for the network began
when NAL contracted with EDUCOM
(Interuniversity Communications
Council) giving them the charge
"to develop basic plans For an
Agricultural Sciences Informa-
tion Network.."

-1970 To assist EDUCOM, the Division
of Agriculture of the National
Association of State University
and Land-Grant Colleges
appointed an advisory committee
of researchers, educators, and
policy makers in the agricul-
tural and food sciences
"to develop a plan for an effec-
tive system for the retrieval,
analysis and dissemination of
agricultural science informa-
tion."


-1971 After one year of study the
Committee made its recommenda-
tions and discussed the network
concept with the agricultural
community. The need was identi-
fied and recommendation made for
"the immediate establishment
of an Agricultural Libraries
Network."

-1975 During this period several
papers were written producing
discussion on the most
advantageous, needed, and
practical functions of the
network. A view was put
forth of how an integrated
network might appear.

A. Farley, Administrator

of Technical Information Systems
(TIS), gave testimony during the
hearings before a subcommittee
of the Committee on Appropria-
tions of the House of Representa-
tives. In his concluding remarks
he re-stressed earlier points
which he had made:

"The original mission statement
of 1862 directed the collection
and dissemination of useful in-
formation on agricultural sub-
jects. Rather than attempting
to become a complete and ex-
haustive storehouse of all
agricultural knowledge, NAL will
rely on a network system or
partnership with other agri-
cultural libraries both in the
public and private sectors to
create a cohesive nation-wide
collection of agricultural in-
formation. We seek with this
appropriation request your
understanding support."

-1977 On September 29 the President
signed the Food and Agriculture


Act of 1977. Section 1411 of
this act entitled "Libraries and
Information Network" mandates
the implementation of the long
planned and hoped for informa-
tion network.

-1978 NAL brought in Charles Gilreath,
Texas A&M University Libraries
on a short-term basis to give
new thinking to the network in
light of today's somewhat
changed needs. He produced
working documents which con-
firmed the need for a network,
described some possible network
functions and provided a method-
ology for getting the best
possible ideas together on
setting the wheels in motion to
make the network a reality.

-1979 A session of the Agricultural
Information Conference, November
1979, provided the opportunity
to discuss the network,
specifically the methodology
for gathering cooperation from
throughout the U.S. to get the
network off the drawing board
and into existence.


One methodology selected was a series of regional conferences throughout the
country--each conference to address pre-identified issues such as the structure,
functions, and governance of an agricultural science information network.


Discussion was directed at how such
conferences should be set up; five
questions were considered:
1. For the purpose of establishing
regional conferences to discuss
issues relating to national net-
working, how should the regions be
identified?
2. Given that the objective of a co-
operative national information
network should be directed to the
improved awareness and utilization
of agricultural and food sciences
information by scientists, policy
makers, and the general public,
who should attend the regional


conferences? How many partici-
pants would be desirable?
3. Who should be responsible for
organizing the regional con-
ferences, formatting the program,
and distributing the publicity?
4. What issues would you like to see
addressed?
5. What kind of feedback should be
returned to TIS/NAL following the
conferences?
Responses to the questions were pre-
pared by four groups and their think-
ing is summarized here.
1. For the purpose of regional con-
ferences to discuss issues relating
(NETWORK, Continued on page 3)




(NETWORK, Continued from page 2) .Administrators


to national networking, how should
the regions be identified?
Possible region configurations
suggested were:
a. Experiment station/Extension
service regions;
b. Document Delivery System regions;
c. Demographically based regions;
d. Regions created according to
strength in bibliographic re-
sources;
e. Agricultural commodity subject
groups;
f. Regions by interest group, e.g.
arid lands, tropical and sub-
tropical agriculture and forestry;
g. U.S. Government regional con-
figuration.
There was concern expressed that maximum
participation should be encouraged and
that this would be assisted by minimizing
travel.

2. Given that the objective of a
cooperative national information
network should be directed to the
improved awareness and utilization
of agricultural and food sciences
information by scientists, policy
makers,and the general public, who
should attend the regional confer-
ences? How many participants
would be desirable?

Optimum size was considered to be
no more than 100 people. It was
thought important that within
large institutions such as
land-grant universities no single
person should be chosen as repre-
sentative and sole spokesman, a
diversity of opinion being
essential to the success of the
whole venture. In addition to
this concept, it was also stressed
that the gamut of people involved
in the agricultural information
enterprise should be involved
including


Agricultural College Deans
Directors of Libraries
State Legislators
Director of State Library
.Information Managers (the majority
should be Information Managers)
.Organized public interest
groups, power groups or
lobbyists used by Extension
agents
.Users
Farmers
Agricultural College
Students and Faculty
Field USDA personnel
3. Who should be responsible for
organizing the regional con-
ferences, formatting the program,
and distributing the publicity?

It was agreed that TIS should
take responsibility for identify-
ing the regions, the regional
steering committees, and the host
institutions. The committees
would format the programs to
allow enough time to explore
their own unique interests and
concerns but would work from
general guidelines, basic
information, support, and agenda
items developed by TIS. The
committees would also distribute
their own publicity.

4. What issues would you like to see
addressed? List five in priority
order.

With one exception the same five
issues were the top five in each
group although they varied a
little in priority order. The
aggregate of opinion identified
the following issues and ranked
them as indicated.
a. Goals and objectives of the
network established after
identifying the needs and
priorities of the region.
(NETWORK, Continued on page 4)





(NETWORK, Continued from page 3)

b. Funding generating a strong,
continuing commitment of
resources to the network.
b. Organization, structure,
participant roles, and
governance of the network.
d. Identification of the benefit
and rewards of the system to
the various participants.
e. Education and training in
agricultural information both
for those disseminating it and
for potential consumers.

5. What kind of feedback should be '
returned to TIS/NAL following the
conference?

It was recommended that reports
should be written during the
conferences, being the responsi-
bility of the steering committee.
The reports would include
decisions made by regional confer-
ence participants, suggestions,
requests, and any other informa-
tion about that region necessary
to make the network succeed. The
reports would be used to structure
a national conference to effect a
synthesis.

Formation of the Agricultural Informa-
tion Network is obviously an evolution-
ary process. It is intended that the
ideas reported here should contribute
to that process and to that end will be
included in a discussion of the
development of the network with the
Joint Council on Food and Agriculture.
This Advisory Council to the Secretary
of Agriculture exists to foster
coordination of the agricultural re-
search, extension and teaching
activities of the Federal Government,
the States, colleges and universities,
and other public and private institu-
tions and persons involved in the food
and agricultural sciences. Member-
ship of the joint Council is listed oq

ELECTRONIC MAIL SYSTEM

Under a national electronic mail
system network developed by SEA's
TIS and Extension units, a new type
of rapid communication will soon
be possible among State Extension
offices and between State and
Federal offices. The system
provides for the instantaneous
delivery of hard copy messages that
are typed, stored, and accessed
through computer terminals.
Successfully pilot tested in 22
states last year, the system will
begin operating nationally this
fall. Significant applications of
the system have already been made.
There was a response within 36
hours to an urgent request for
information on Extension energy
projects and quick delivery of
information to State Extension
directors about the progress of
critical budget legislation and
hearing developments. The system
has also been used to speed up the
approval of work plans and to
provide information for regional
meetings. In one case, a paper was
jointly authored using the system.
In addition to its usefulness in
administering day-to-day operations
of State Extension offices and
information gathering, the system
has the capability of communicating
with word processors, providing the
ability to transmit formal communi-
cations in finished form.

The project coordinator for
Technical Information Systems is
