STREVELL, WALLACE H.
A 1-YEAR PILOT PROJECT OF DOCUMENT ABSTRACTION WAS UNDERTAKEN BY A VOLUNTARY PANEL OF 32 SCHOOL PLANT SPECIALISTS FROM THE MEMBERSHIP OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL ON SCHOOLHOUSE CONSTRUCTION. THE GOAL OF THIS PILOT STUDY, CARRIED OUT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON, WAS TO IDENTIFY, ACQUIRE, ABSTRACT, AND DELIVER TO THE EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH INFORMATION CENTER 1,000 DOCUMENTS OF EDUCATIONAL FACILITY RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION RELEASED SINCE 1960 THAT WERE UNPUBLISHED OR OF LOW CIRCULATION. THE SYSTEM OF PROCEDURES FOR THE PROJECT WAS DESCRIBED. THESE PROCEDURES INCLUDED PREPARATION OF A SOURCE LIST, INSTRUCTIONS TO ABSTRACTORS, REQUESTS FOR MATERIALS, EVALUATION OF MATERIALS, AND ORGANIZATION OF DOCUMENTS AND ABSTRACTS FOR STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL. THE TYPES OF DOCUMENTS ABSTRACTED WERE (1) RULES, REGULATIONS, AND PLANNING, (2) WORKSHOPS, SYMPOSIUMS, AND CONFERENCES, (3) ACTION RESEARCH, AND (4) CONTROLLED RESEARCH. THE DOCUMENTS WERE OBTAINED FROM STATE AGENCIES, CONFERENCE REPORTS, PROFESSIONAL JOURNALS AND MAGAZINES, PRIVATE INDUSTRY, UNIVERSITY RESEARCH, PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS, AND DOCTORAL THESES. (AL)
