JUNIOR COLLEGE EDUCATORS INDICATE INFORMATION THEY NEED.
MATHIES, LORRAINE
IN APRIL 1967, A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO 3700 PERSONS TO DETERMINE THE SERVICES DESIRED BY POTENTIAL USERS OF THE ERIC CLEARINGHOUSE FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE INFORMATION. OF MORE THAN 1,000 JUNIOR COLLEGE EDUCATORS WHO RESPONDED, NEARLY THREE-FOURTHS IDENTIFIED A PRIMARY NEED FOR INFORMATION ON CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION. EARLY DISSEMINATION OF RESEARCH FINDINGS WAS REQUESTED, THOUGH THERE APPEARS TO BE LITTLE TRUE RESEARCH EFFORT. REPORTS OF PRACTICES IN OTHER INSTITUTIONS AND COLLEAGUES' OPINIONS WERE CONSIDERED IMPORTANT, AS WERE PROMPT REPLIES TO INFORMATION REQUESTS AND CURRENT INFORMATION. SUBGROUPS OF THE RESPONDENTS VARIED IN THE EMPHASIS ON VARIOUS TYPES OF INFORMATION WITH ADMINISTRATORS BEING MORE CONCERNED THAN LIBRARIANS ABOUT INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY. LIBRARIANS TEND TO USE THEIR OWN COLLECTIONS FOR INFORMATION, WHILE ADMINISTRATORS RELY MORE UPON STATE AND NATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS. PROFESSORS OF HIGHER EDUCATION, COUNSELORS, AND RESEARCHERS ARE INTERESTED IN RESEARCH PROCESSES, WHILE TEACHERS WISHED HIGHLIGHTS OF RESEARCH REPORTS AND GENERAL INFORMATION. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "JUNIOR COLLEGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 38, NUMBER 3, NOVEMBER 1967. THE DISSERTATION ON WHICH THIS ARTICLE IS BASED IS ERIC DOCUMENT ED 013 097. (WO)
