J U D G E more countries”-opens the gate very wide in the present context, although even so the number of real information systems that can be admitted is fairly small. The Scandinavian countries are developing a single-minded approach to this field through their Nordforsk Committee for Scientific and Technical Information (Scandinavian Council for Applied Research, I 966), and another joint activity is the Scandia Plan, which encourages particular libraries in the four Scandinavian countries to undertake special regional responsibilities, in particular language or subject areas, and so permits national economies in documentation.

To this growing number of primary publications must be added a mass of technical reports which is also growing, much faster, in number and in importance (American Psychological Association, I 96 5). The technical report is detested by the documentalist, who finds it unpredictable, unindexable and often inaccessible. At the same time, from the point of view of the author and user, it can usually appear faster than an article in a periodical publication; it is aimed directly at a particular class of user, often within an invisible, or even visible, college; the complaint that absence of refereeing makes the quality dubious in many cases is perhaps now being answered by the increasing circulation of these reports, exposing them promptly to an interested and critical audience.

6) Innovations should be so designed as to generate behavioural and economic measures of their efficiency and effectiveness. (7) An innovation should be designed as a genuine trial, with built-in mechanisms for modifying or terminating it when the results are evaluated. One cannot predict all the effects resulting from a given innovation; all too often a poor innovation, once instituted, has a slow death. THE EFFECTING AND TESTING OF SOME INNOVATIONS A review of the existing communication system revealed several critical points at which a breakdown in communication occurred.
