A STUDY OF THE INFORMATION NEEDS OF JUNIOR COLLEGE EDUCATORS.
MATHIES, MARY LORRAINE
TO DETERMINE THE INFORMATION NEEDS OF JUNIOR COLLEGE EDUCATORS AS A BASIS FOR PLANNING ACTIVITIES OF THE ERIC CLEARINGHOUSE FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE INFORMATION, QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO 3,792 POTENTIAL USERS OF CLEARINGHOUSE SERVICES (ADMINISTRATORS, LIBRARIANS, AND OTHERS). THE 1,062 RESPONDENTS INDICATED GREATEST INTEREST IN AN EXCHANGE OF CURRENT INFORMATION ON CURRICULUM, INSTRUCTION, INNOVATIVE PRACTICES AND INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH. THESE AND OTHER FINDINGS LED TO RECOMMENDATIONS THAT THE CLEARINGHOUSE SHOULD ENGAGE IN THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES--(1) MORE EFFECTIVE PUBLICITY CONCERNING CLEARINGHOUSE SERVICES, (2) EXPANSION OF SERVICES THROUGH COOPERATIVE ACTION WITH THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF JUNIOR COLLEGES, (3) FREQUENT PUBLICATION OF ACCESSIONS LISTS AND SUBJECT BIBLIOGRAPHIES, (4) PREPARATION OF A HANDBOOK OF RESEARCH METHODOLOGY, (5) PUBLICATION OF AN ANNUAL SUMMARY OF JUNIOR COLLEGE RESEARCH, AND (6) SPONSORSHIP OF PROGRAMS OF TRAINING AND OF CURRICULUM RESEARCH. THIS DISSERTATION IS AVAILABLE FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, INC., 313 N. FIRST STREET, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48107. (HH)
