Abstract
The paper describes the characteristics which make up a typical defence information service in the mid 1980s. In outlining its goals, organization, facilities and services, the differences between a defence information service and a traditional library are highlighted. As a systematic manager of information needed by a nation's defence community in support of research and development, this service has requirements over and above those of a library in types of information collected, in furniture and equipment, and in variety of services offered. Services provided by defence information agencies in the identifying, acquiring, organizing, subject analyzing, announcing and disseminating of recorded knowledge are illustrated through a number of mini-scenarios describing typical situations in which a potential user of a defence information service may find himself.
