PROCEDURES FOR PHYSICAL FACILITY AND UTILIZATION STUDIES.
SCHWEHR, B.J.; SCHWEHR, F.E.
EFFECTIVELY PLANNING THE BUILDINGS NECESSARY FOR AN INSTITUTION OF HIGHER EDUCATION TO ACHIEVE ITS DESIRED GOALS REQUIRES SYSTEMATIC METHODOLOGY FOR GATHERING ACCURATE INFORMATION ON WHAT FACILITIES ARE AVAILABLE AND HOW THE FACILITIES ARE PRESENTLY BEING USED BY A GIVEN NUMBER OF STUDENTS IN A PARTICULAR COURSE OF STUDY. THIS MANUAL PRESENTS SUCH A SYSTEMATIC METHOD FOR CONDUCTING STUDIES ON PHYSICAL FACILITIES AND THEIR UTILIZATION AS RELATED TO PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN WISCONSIN. THE PROCEDURES DESCRIBED WILL PROVIDE COMPARABLE DATA IN THE REPORTING OF EXISTING FACILITIES AND SERVE AS A BASIS FOR MAKING BIENNIAL PROJECTIONS OF FACILITY NEEDS. INCLUDED ARE THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS OF INFORMATION--(1) A SYSTEM OF SPACE CLASSIFICATION WHICH WOULD UNIFY DEFINITIONS OF ROOM TYPES, SUBJECT FIELD AND FUNCTION CLASSIFICATIONS FOR THE PURPOSE OF GIVING COMPARATIVE DATA FOR STATISTICAL STUDIES AT THE NATIONAL OR STATE LEVELS, (2) THE METHODS OF COLLECTING DATA FOR THE INVENTORY AND UTILIZATION STUDIES, (3) A FORMAT FOR PRESENTING THE DESIRED INFORMATION OUTPUT, AND (4) THE MANNER IN WHICH THE INVENTORY AND UTILIZATION INFORMATION WILL BE USED. THE SPECIFIC INFORMATION ON TYPES OF WORKSHEETS, FORMATS FOR THE COLLECTED DATA AND ANALYZED DATA ARE INCLUDED WITHIN THE TEXT. WHILE THE MANUAL IS BASED ON A COMPUTERIZED METHOD OF ANALYSIS, THE PROCEDURES MAY BE EASILY CONVERTED TO A MANUAL ANALYSIS WHICH MAY BE DESIRABLE FOR SMALLER INSTITUTIONS. (BH)
