We note that: - building of the information society is one of the main trends of the mankind development. A human being with all the diversity of his interests is in the focus of the information society concept; - development of the information and communication technologies (ICT) is of priority for carrying out socio-economic reforms in our countries; - an important factor determining use of ICTs in our countries is a specific character of the region with its enormous distances, existence of remote, difficult of access areas with sparse population and also with significant differences in the level of economic development of the states; - development and implementation of the national programmes for transition to the information society are necessary for successful development of ICTs; - an important role in the interstate integration of information infrastructure in our region should be played by the Regional Commonwealth in the field of Communications (RCC) and Coordination Council of the CIS members states on Informatization attached to the RCC. We believe that: - each person has to have the possibility of access to information and ICT facilities notwithstanding the gender, nationality, confession, social standing and residence; - shaping of the information society should take place in the atmosphere of mutual trust of all the interested parties; - when shaping information society the full-scale participation and co-operation of the state, business circles and civil society at the international, regional, national and local levels are necessary; - improvement and harmonization of the legal base at the international and national levels are necessary for building the information society; - intellectual, scientific and technical and educational potential accumulated in our countries can and should be used with the object of development of other countries; - benefits of the ICTs are fully realized when the reliability and safety of the relevant technologies are insured;

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
