ADVISORY COUNCILS TO SEA CREATED

ThI FOOD AND AGRICULTURE ACT of 1977 (P.L. 95-113) mandated the creation of two new groups for
public, state, and federal consideration of questions concerned with research, education, teaching, and extension
activities in the food and agricultural sciences. These are:
Joint Council on Food and Agricultural Sciences (25 members, met three times in 1978, and
in January this year).
National Agricultural Research and Extension Users Advisory Board (21 members, held its
organizational meeting late in 1978).
These two advisory groups to the Secretary of Agriculture are required to meet together once a year, submit
recommendations for action, provide coordination, and counsel the Federal Government on agricultural research,
education, teaching, and information activities.
JOINT COUNCIL
"The primary responsibility of the Joint Council shall be to foster coordination of the
agricultural research, extension, and teaching activities of the Federal Government, the
States, Colleges and Universities, and other public and private institutions and persons
involved in the food and agricultural sciences." U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Secretary's Memo No. 1938 (February 21, 1978)
Membership is broad, from the private, state, and federal sectors and appointed to represent specific groups or
activity areas. Membership is given on a page following; the public is free to present views to these individuals or
members of the Users Advisory Board. Initial meetings have been concerned with organizing and establishing a
structure for systematic discussions and direction from state and local levels.
Of particular interest to readers of ALIN is a STUDY GROUP established in late 1978 by the Joint Council for
the planning and coordination of technical information systems. This STUDY GROUP is under the
chairmanship of Dr. Richard A. Farley, Deputy Director for Technical Information Systems, Science and
Education Administration. A meeting is planned for the spring of 1979. Members are:
Dr. Arthur R. Baldwin, Director of Research, Cargill, Inc., Minneapolis
Mi. Benjamin R. Blankenship, Jr., Director of Inf. Services, ESCS, USDA
Dr. 0. R. Fennema, Chairman, Department of Food Science, University
of Wisconsin, Madison

Community College, Sioux City

USERS ADVISORY BOARD

The Board has responsibilities for reviewing the policies, plans, and goals of the Department of Agriculture in the
food and agricultural sciences and the related programs in other Federal and State units, colleges and universities as
developed by the Secretary under the authorization of Title XIV of the Food and Agriculture Act. Its intention is
to give aim to the programs for which the Joint Council is the coordinating body. The Board may make
recommendations to the Secretary on the distribution of resources and the allocation of funds covered by this
section of the Act.

These two mechanisms for wide public interaction as well as national coordination are new in some aspects. The
Joint Council reflects part of the role of the abolished Agricultural Research Policy Advisory Committee.

TO HOST AGRICOLA ONLINE COURSE


The Technical Information Systems, Science and Education Administration is sponsoring a five-day workshop to
train librarians and information specialists in the utilization of its AGRICOLA bibliographic data base in an online
mode. Charles L. Gilreath, who compiled the CAIN ONLINE USERS MANUAL, will teach the course with the
aid of terminal instructors.

The course will be held May 7-11, 1979 at the Student Union Building, Mississippi State University, Mississippi
State, Mississippi.

Twenty persons will be accepted in the course. Applicants must be professional librarians or information
specialists with advanced academic degrees. Preference will be given to government, land-grant (including the 1890
institutions) or agriculturally related organizations in the South. The course is introductory to the use of AGRICOLA;
no prior terminal experience is required. The course will provide extensive lecture, exercise, and terminal
experience with commercial systems offering AGRICOLA. All equipment, manuals and instructions will be provided.
Persons wishing to attend the course should submit their names on letterhead stationery by April 27 to:

Reference Branch, TIS
National Agricultural Library
Beltsville, Maryland 20705



Emergency telephone reservations, or inquiries, may be made by calling (301) 344-3834. Registrants will be
responsible for their lodging, meals, and transportation. Lodgings adjacent to the university campus are:

NEWS NOTES


BASIC RESEARCH ON SOVIET AGRICULTURE
was the topic of a conference held June 8, 1978 at
the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies
at the Wilson Center (Washington, D.C.) under the
joint sponsorship of the Kennan Institute and the
U.S. Department of Agriculture. Scholars are
constructively working to disseminate information
on the abundance of Soviet and East European
publications in the United States.
