New Information Technology Study Findings Recently Were Reported by Researchers at Robert Gordon University

June 24, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- New research on Information Technology is the subject of a report. According to news reporting from Aberdeen, United Kingdom, by VerticalNews editors, the research stated, "This paper evolved from a project supported by the European Commission TEMPUS programme that provided technical assistance for developments in Armenia, Georgia and Uzbekistan. The project (NMPLIS) sought to underpin the modernization of library and information services by assisting the development of new Master's Degree programmes in Librarianship and Information Studies."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Robert Gordon University, "The paper addresses a wide range of issues that were encountered during the project, including the dissemination of research information as well as the state of publishing, bookselling, libraries, and information services in those countries. It draws attention to the relatively poor international and bilateral support for library development compared with that formerly received by the developing' countries, despite their economic similarities."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "It notes that the activities of international governmental and non-governmental agencies to offset the catastrophic effects of the disintegration of the centralized Soviet system have lacked coordination, and emphasizes the need for national governments to be encouraged to take a comprehensive, strategic approach to ensure more sustainable development of their library and information services, suggesting that this approach could be appropriate for the other post-Soviet Republics."
