Title: The scientific and technical information system in Saudi Higher Education: a systems approach
Authors: Al-Shanbari, Humod A.
Issue Date: 1998
Publisher: © Humod A. AI-Shanbari
Abstract: Continuing change in the provision of, and access to, scientific and technical information has stimulated the interest of researchers to study current information provision and usage in different work environments. The aim of this thesis is to study the current operation of the STI system in the Saudi higher education environment. A systems approach was adopted in order to have a holistic view of the requirements of this study. Since the systems approach is a concept, rather than a specific methodology, a number of framework research models that take the systems approach into consideration were developed to guide the investigation of both the information systems and the users.
