SURVEY OF TEXTS AND INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL USED IN INFORMATION SCIENCE PROGRAMS.
BRACKEN, MARILYN C.
A SURVEY WAS MADE AT THE REQUEST OF THE COMMITTEE ON TRAINING OF DOCUMENTALISTS OF THE INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION FOR DOCUMENTATION TO DETERMINE WHAT MATERIALS WERE BEING USED IN UNIVERSITY COURSES IN THE AREA OF INFORMATION SCIENCE AND REQUIRED CORE COURSES IN INFORMATION SCIENCE PROGRAMS IN THE UNITED STATES. A BIBLIOGRAPHY, INCLUDING BOOKS, JOURNAL ARTICLES AND OTHER TEXTUAL MATERIALS, WAS PREPARED FROM INFORMATION SUBMITTED BY 34 RESPONDENTS. OF ALL TYPES OF MATERIALS, BOOKS AND JOURNAL ARTILCES WERE MOST COMMON, EACH ACCOUNTING FOR ABOUT ONE-THIRD OF THE REFERENCES. CITATIONS FROM TWO JOURNALS, "AMERICAN DOCUMENTATION" AND "JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL DOCUMENTATION," MAKE UP OVER HALF OF THE JOURNAL ARTICLES, AND MATERIAL PUBLISHED IN 1965 NUMBERS OVER 20 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL. THE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF 463 REFERENCES IS ARRANGED BY MAIN AUTHOR, AND AN AUTHOR INDEX AND PERMUTED TITLE INDEX IS FURNISHED. A LIST OF RESPONDENTS TO THE SURVEY IS ALSO GIVEN. (CM)
