|Abstract: ||As society becomes more and more information dependent, it is imperative
that each nation develops its own systems for the storage, retrieval, and
dissemination of that information. Furthermore, since so much now depends
on science and technology, the development of scientific and technological
information systems is of immense importance to any nation that needs
technological progress. Effective transfer of this information requires a
well developed system for that purpose. This is the central theme, and
therefore the raison d'etre, for the present study.
One of the problems of the developing countries is the poor state of their
information systems and services. Minimal amount of scientific and
technological information is generated, and the infrastructure necessary
to avail themselves of that located elsewhere in the world is either lacking
or ill-developed. Ultimately, their economy, educational systems, managerial
skills, etc., suffer because of insufficient, or lack of information. These
issues are examined in the study in the light of situations in both the
developed and developing countries in order to establish contrasting features.
An attempt is made to identify what constitute the infrastructure of information.
Particular emphasis is laid on Nigeria as a developing country and data are
based on the scientific and technological information resources collected from
