A STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL SYSTEM FOR DOCUMENTS IN INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES. REPORT NO. 13.
DIAMOND, ROBERT M.; LEE, BERTA GRATTAN
IN ORDER TO IMPROVE INSTRUCTION WITHIN TWO-YEAR LOWER DIVISION COURSES, A COMPREHENSIVE RESOURCE LIBRARY WAS DEVELOPED AND A SIMPLIFIED CATALOGING AND INFORMATION RETRIEVAL SYSTEM WAS APPLIED TO IT. THE ROYAL MCBEE "KEYDEX" SYSTEM, CONTAINING THREE MAJOR COMPONENTS--A PUNCH MACHINE, FILE CARDS, AND A LIGHT BOX--WAS USED. CARDS WERE HEADED WITH KEY WORDS AND COLOR CODED. SUBJECT HEADINGS AND CATEGORIES WERE DEVISED FOR THREE MAJOR COLLECTIONS, THE RESEARCH LIBRARY, THE CATALOG LIBRARY, AND THE PROGRAM LIBRARY, AND NUMBERS WERE ASSIGNED. BY USE OF THIS SYSTEM, A TEACHER OR STUDENT CAN LOCATE EVERY ITEM IN THE LIBRARY THAT CONTAINS THE SPECIFIC COMBINATION OF VARIABLES HE REQUIRES. LISTS ARE GIVEN FOR CATEGORIES, ITEM NUMBERING, AND FILING. (MF)
