Susono saona, Utari Budihardjo

Abstract


There are a total of 581 special libraries and information sources unevenly distributed in 65 cities in Indonesia. The majority are located in Java, with the highest concentration in Jakarta. A large proportion of these libraries are affiliated to educational institutions/ universities, with an interest in sciences in general, with a holding of 1,000 - 10,000 book volumes; only a small number of them have computer facilities.

To optimize the services of these libraries and information centers, a National Scientific Documentation and Information Network System had been set up with four centers as focal points respectively in the fields of humanities, science & technology, biology & agricultural sciences, and health & medical sciences.

No less than 14 institutions can be considered as data centers on various fields of science and technology. Some of them which deal with biological resources have worked together in a network under the coordination of the National Commission for the Preservation of Plant and Animal Genetic Resources. Fourteen of these tutions had been identified also as microbial collections.
