Subject(s): Future trends Libraries and society
Abstract: Includes a response by John P. McDonald. rroject: Knowledge 2000, a conference organized by the National Science Foundation, was a unique event as well as an experiment. This was the first time that the foundation, essentially a grant-awarding agency, assumed the responsibility for creating and executing a program that it had originated. It was an attempt to discover, if possible, the knowledge needs and requirements for the country in the next twenty-five years by the year 2001. Knowledge was defined in the broadest sense: as information organized so as to influence decision-making and to improve the decision-making process.
