STUDY TO DEVELOP A RESEARCH PROGRAM FOR THE DESIGN DEVELOPMENT OF MODERN COLLEGE LIBRARIES. FINAL REPORT.
Historical Evaluation and Research Organization, McLean, VA.
THIS STUDY FORMULATES A RESEARCH PROGRAM TO FACILITATE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF LIBRARIES FOR SMALL LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES USING MODERN LIBRARY METHODS AND TECHNOLOGY AND NEW TECHNIQUES OF INFORMATION STORAGE, RETRIEVAL AND TRANSFER. AS A RESULT OF INTERVIEWS WITH LIBRARIANS AND OTHERS IN THE UNITED STATES AND EUROPE AND FROM A REVIEW OF CURRENT LITERATURE, AREAS IN WHICH FURTHER RESEARCH IS NEEDED ARE DEFINED AS (1) SYSTEMS ANALYSIS AND DESIGN, (2) NEW TECHNOLOGY AND TECHNIQUES, (3) COORDINATION OF ADMINISTRATION AND USER-ORIENTED SERVICE, (4) INTERRELATIONSHIP OF EDUCATION, INFORMATION AND LIBRARY SERVICES, AND (5) POTENTIALITIES OF INFORMATION STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL. NEW EDUCATIONAL CONCEPTS AND TECHNIQUES AFFECTING LIBRARIES INCLUDE MORE INDEPENDENT STUDY, INTEGRATION OF ACADEMIC DISCIPLINES, AUDIO-TUTORIAL TEACHING METHODS, LEARNING CENTERS, AND THE LIBRARY-COLLEGE. THE AMBIGUOUS RELATIONSHIPS OF NON-BOOK INFORMATION MEDIA--AUDIO-VISUAL, REPROGRAPHIC, MINIATURIZED, AND AUTOMATED--TO THE COLLEGE LIBRARY REQUIRE CLARIFICATION. THE OBJECTIVES OF EDUCATION, THE ROLE OF THE LIBRARY AND THE LIBRARIAN, COORDINATION WITH THE FACULTY IN BOOK SELECTION, BUDGET PROBLEMS, POTENTIALITIES OF THE COMPUTER, INTERLIBRARY COOPERATION, COST EFFECTIVENESS, AND DECENTRALIZATION VS. CONSOLIDATION, ARE PROBLEMS THAT NEED STUDY AS A BASIS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW COLLEGE LIBRARY. A DETAILED OUTLINE OF A RESEARCH PROGRAM IN INCLUDED. (AUTHOR)
