2) Prepare an indicative abstract of the below mentioned text in not more than 50 words.

User Groups and Types of IAC Products

Users of IAC products can be broadly categorized into six groups.Not only information requirements of each user group differ from each other, within each group different types of IAC products are needed by the users depending upon the area of their work as well as stage of that work. Even if similar type of IAC product carrying the same message e.g. creating awareness of a new technology useful for all level of users or a breakthrough in cure of some chronic disease, is to be prepared for different groups of users, the level of treatment of the subject, technical details covered, media and format of the product will be different for each group, though the message conveyed may be the same. The aspect which is equally important to be considered while preparing an IAC product is the communication aspect. The communication is a process by which information is transferred through a given channel (or channels) from a source or a sender to a destination or recipient. The process can be in both directions involving feedback from the recipient. There are many types of communication processes (instituted for specific purposes, audiences, times, circumstances etc) such as mass communication, scientific and technical communication, interpersonal communication, teaching, advertising etc Diffusion is a specific type of communication of a special interest in the context of consolidated information. Diffusion is a communication process by which a new idea or an innovation spreads among the members of a social system (or among a defined social group). The process of diffusion is a type of decision making process, which passes through various stages, and each stage has different characteristics and may require different type of consolidated information and different communication channels. According to Roger (1962, 1971), the process of diffusion of information and associated decision making involves five stages viz. i) awareness, ii) interest/knowledge, iii) attitude formation, iv) trial/decision, and v) adoption/confirmation. Let us study what each stage mean. Awareness: An individual (or group) is exposed to an idea or innovation. Interest/knowledge: The individual (or group) becomes interested in the new idea or activity and seeks additional information so an attitude towards it can be formed. Attitude formation: The individual (or group) forms a favourable or unfavourable attitude towards the idea or innovation and assesses it in terms of his own or anticipated future situation. Trial/Decision: The individual (or group) seeks information for testing and trying the idea or innovation. Adoption/Confirmation: The individual (or group) decides to continue full use of idea or innovation. The type of IAC product for a user (or user group) will depend upon user’s needs for that stage. As users proceed through the diffusion stages (from awareness to confirmation), information requirements become more specific and IAC products become more specific and even more personal. More specific products can serve less specific needs but not the reverse. For instance, an IAC product directed towards attitude formation can also serve as an awareness product but not vice versa. Table 2 provides examples of IAC products as they are appropriate for a number of different types of user organizations and as they relate to five stages in the diffusion of ideas or innovations.
