1972: Information resources in the environmental sciences
Allerton Park Institute Proceedings (no. 18, 1972); edited by George S. Bonn
While the environment, broadly defined, has long been a concern of many writers, it has only been since the middle 1960s that the environment has become the concern of almost everybody in the United States and of many people in other countries as well. The resulting proliferation of diverse points of view and of diverse agencies, organizations, and spokesmen in the broad field of the environmental sciences has further resulted in the proliferation of all kinds of publications and of other sources of environmental information. It is to these information resources their production, their development, and their use-that the 1972 Allerton Park Institute directed its attention.
