Abstract:This paper gives a very brief overview of the kinds of activities which are going on at Syracuse University which relate to information referral projects. The School of Library Science is involved in a multi -dimensional effort which focuses on the information needs of minorities and the disadvantaged through research action and research teaching. For the past several years , the school has been undergoing a major refocusing of its approach. A great deal of emphasis is being placed on the "people" aspects of librarians hip. The clearest manifestation of this change is the fact that the school now has four social scientists on its faculty of fifteen members. In addition, the school is now in its third year of offering a social science-oriented doctoral program emphasizing the problems of information transfer. The following discussion briefly describes the kinds of activities the Syracuse School of Library Science is involved in and some of the insights they have provided.
