INFORMATION RETRIEVAL IN ENGLISH, A REPORT TO THE PACIFIC COAST REGIONAL CONFERENCE ON ENGLISH IN THE TWO-YEAR COLLEGE (SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, MARCH 2, 1968).
SHUGRUE, MICHAEL F.
MISCONCEPTIONS CONCERNING THE ENGLISH PROFESSION, SPECIFICALLY THE PH.D. AND THE UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS, ARE ALREADY BEING EXPOSED BY DON CAMERON ALLEN'S STUDY, "THE PH.D. IN ENGLISH AND AMERICAN LITERATURE," AND BY PRELIMINARY FINDINGS FROM THOMAS WILCOX'S "NATIONAL STUDY OF UNDERGRADUATE ENGLISH PROGRAMS." THE AVAILABILITY OF STUDIES SUCH AS THESE AS WELL AS THE DEBATE WHICH THEY EVOKE CAN LEAD TO CHANGES. FOR EXAMPLE, THE EXCHANGE OF STATISTICAL INFORMATION AND VIGOROUS DEBATE ABOUT THE PH.D. WHICH TOOK PLACE IN 1966 AND 1967 ARE DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR MANY OF THE CHANGES ALREADY MADE AND BEING PLANNED. FOR THE TEACHER OR GRADUATE STUDENT WHO IS INTERESTED AND WANTS TO KEEP UP WITH BURGEONING AMOUNTS OF INFORMATION, THE ENGLISH PROFESSION HAS INITIATED TWO PROJECTS. FIRST, THE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES INFORMATION CENTER (ERIC) CLEARINGHOUSE EVALUATES, PREPARES, AND DISSEMINATES INFORMATION ABOUT THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH AT ALL LEVELS, IDENTIFIES CRITICAL ISSUES AND GENERATES RESEARCH ON AND DISCUSSION OF THEM. SECOND, THE MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION, THE CENTER FOR APPLIED LINGUISTICS, AND THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH, WHICH COLLECT THE INFORMATION FOR ENGLISH ERIC, HAVE MADE PLANS TO PRODUCE CUMULATIVE, INTEGRATED, AND COMPUTERIZED BIBLIOGRAPHIES OF ENGLISH SCHOLARSHIP AND PEDAGOGY BEGINNING IN 1970.
