Title:Environmental Information From Other Organizations
Author(s):Brodine, Virginia
Subject(s):Environmental protection --Information services
Abstract:Stephen Quigley's paper following this one deals with the professional and technical societies and their publications as sources of information on the environmental sciences; while my subject is the other organizations. This designation brings to mind the other woman. Is the relationship of these other organizations to our general subject somewhat suspect, while the professional societies are legitimately wedded to it? How did we other organizations get into this respectable company, alongside government, academic, and professional sources? Is not our scientific purity questionable? Has not our reputation been compromised since we have been seen in nonscientific companybird watchers, peaceniks, health nuts, propagandists for and against various laws and regulations, people over 50 who could not pass today's high school chemistry courses and people under 20 who find these courses irrelevant?
