English abstract

Watching for information is an occupation which can be aimed at many fields of activity: competitive business watch, information technology watch, scientific watch, commercial watch, social watch, business strategy watch, current information watch, etc. The operation is a continuous and dynamic process which requires data as it becomes available to the individuals or more specifically to information scientists, with a view to being used by them. It requires a sense of expertise consistent with the topic or nature of the gathered information. Information watch services are different from services provided by librarians in that the course of the event is being anticipated. For instance, business competition is the main trigger of the technology watch process. In the framework of a government service, information watch is performed in order to know of the repercussions of decision-making on public opinion. The information watch process involves a wide range of tools which can be combined altogether: databases specialized in the field of patents, trademarks, corporate files, press releases, etc; reviews of the press and journals, mail-order catalogues, marketing offers, etc; conferences, meetings and forums.
