A PILOT PROJECT TO DEVELOP REQUIREMENTS FOR ESTABLISHING AN INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR RESEARCH ACTIVITIES IN THE FIELD OF LIBRARIANSHIP AND INFORMATION SCIENCE. FINAL REPORT.
KRUG, JUDITH FINGERET
THE LIBRARY RESEARCH CLEARINGHOUSE, ALREADY ESTABLISHED BY THE AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION, WAS EXPANDED TO DEVELOP THE REQUIREMENTS OF A SYSTEM OF RETRIEVAL AND DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION ABOUT RESEARCH IN PROGRESS IN LIBRARY SCIENCE. THE BASIC OBJECTIVES WERE--(1) TO CREATE THE CLEARINGHOUSES'S SERVICES IN ACQUISITION, STORAGE, RETRIEVAL, AND DISSEMINATION OF RESEARCH INFORMATION, (2) TO ASSIST IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A THESAURUS OF TERMS FOR THE MATERIALS, AND (3) TO TEST AND EVALUATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE CLEARINGHOUSE. INFORMATION ABOUT ON-GOING PROJECTS WAS GATHERED THROUGH A PREVIOUSLY ESTABLISHED NETWORK, INDEXED, ABSTRACTED, AND USED IN RESPONSE TO REQUESTS ABOUT CURRENT RESEARCH. REQUIREMENTS FOUND FOR AN INFORMATION SYSTEM OF THIS TYPE WERE--(1) DEVELOPMENT OF A STRONG ACQUISITIONS NETWORK, (2) DEVELOPMENT OF SEVERAL CRITERIA FOR INPUT, INCLUDING CONTENT, APPLICABILITY, AND DATE OF PUBLICATION, (3) DEVELOPMENT OF A THESAURUS, (4) ESTABLISHMENT OF A PUBLICATION, AND (5) DEVELOPMENT OF A DISSEMINATION NETWORK. OF THESE, THE DEVELOPMENT OF CRITERIA FOR INPUT FOR THE SYSTEM DETERMINES TO THE GREATEST EXTENT ITS EFFECTIVENESS. (AUTHOR/CM)
