A Case Study: ERIC and the Junior College Library
Bosen, Shirley E.; Whitney, William T.
Junior College Journal, v39 n 1 September 1968
This article illustrates the various uses to which ERIC resources can be put. The Fullerton Junior College Library subscribes to about two-thirds of the ERIC reports, all on microfiche. The advantages of microfiche are that it (1) is up-to-date, (2) is inexpensive, (3) is indexed, (4) occupies little space, (5) is a regular source, (6) prevents duplication of research, (7) is already processed, and (8) has eye-readable headings for browsing. The library uses "Research in Education" regularly. It gives author, sponsoring institution, subject entries, and an abstract for each document, as well as prices for both microfiche and hard copy. The article also describes the library's method of selection and ordering, translation of descriptors to Library of Congress subject headings (for catalog compatibility), dissemination of information on ERIC documents to students and faculty, particular services to the faculty, and special uses of the material.
