ERIC AND THE JUNIOR COLLEGE.
COHEN, ARTHUR M.
TO FACILITATE GATHERING OF RESEARCH AND OTHER INFORMATION, RETRIEVAL SERVICES HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED IN MANY FIELDS. THE ERIC SYSTEM IS A LARGE SCALE PROGRAM TO BRING THE LITERATURE OF THE EDUCATION FIELD UNDER CONTROL. ADMINISTRATIVELY, IT IS A COMBINATION OF CENTRALIZED AND DECENTRALIZED CONTROL, WITH A CENTRAL OFFICE, A DOCUMENT REPRODUCTION SERVICE, AND A NETWORK OF CLEARINGHOUSES, EACH PARTICIPATING IN THE ERIC SYSTEM AND ALSO SERVING ITS OWN SUBJECT FIELD. SINCE SUMMER 1966, THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE INFORMATION HAS BEEN PROCESSING VARIOUS KINDS OF INFORMATION FOR DISSEMINATION. "FUGITIVE" MATERIALS WERE THE FIRST CONCERN. IN ADDITION TO PROCESSING DOCUMENTS FOR ANNOUNCEMENT IN "RESEARCH IN EDUCATION" AND SUBSEQUENT AVAILABILITY THROUGH THE ERIC DOCUMENT REPRODUCTION SERVICE, THE CLEARINGHOUSE PREPARES A MONTHLY "JUNIOR COLLEGE RESEARCH REVIEW," EACH ISSUE OF WHICH REPRESENTS A COLLECTION, ANALYSIS, OR SUMMARY OF DOCUMENTS ABOUT A SPECIFIC TOPIC RELEVANT TO JUNIOR COLLEGES. THE REVIEW IS PUBLISHED BY THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF JUNIOR COLLEGES. SPECIALIZED BIBLIOGRAPHIES, ASSISTANCE IN INFORMATION RETRIEVAL, PUBLICATIONS AND SYMPOSIUMS ARE OTHER ACTIVITIES AND SERVICES OF THE CLEARINGHOUSE. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "JUNIOR COLLEGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 38, NUMBER 3, NOVEMBER 1967. (WO)
