An automatic information dissemination system (AIDS) flexible enough to accomodate a wide variety of user needs for technical information was developed and successfully pilot-tested. Methods for accelerating the application of research results were studied using mathematical models and computer programs useful in the design of wastewater treatment facilities as a sample technical area. Engineering firms with design experience were directly consulted to verify their needs for models and programs, and to solicit their views on effective dissemination techniques. Based on the engineers' comments, a system was developed to satisfy individual information needs by automatically disseminating the appropriate level of detail on each model or program. The levels of detail are cumulative.
