Abstract
A Canadian defence-oriented scientific information service which collects and disseminates Canadian and foreign scientific and technical information for Canada's defence community is described. Information services such as the current awareness KWOC Index, document digests, and selective dissemination of information (SDI) programs are discussed and the development of the 'on-line' DSIS retrospective search system is described. The transition from hard copy to microform dissemination is mentioned and the use of minicomputers and the study of a possible information analysis center in the Defence Scientific Information Service (DSIS) are outlined as part of the research and development activities of DSIS. Some comments on the future development of information technology for Canada's defence community are offered.
