Grimes, George; And Others
A series of four pamphlets which describe the Regional Information System (RIS) of the Michigan-Ohio Regional Educational Laboratory (MOREL), a system designed to provide an effective, systematic methodology for linking users with relevant resources, compose the major portion of this information package. Each publication details an aspect of the background, functions, and utilization of the RIS: the searching procedure and information sources in the bibliographic chain; selection, installation, and evaluation procedures (including planning activities, costs, and staff requirements); a developmental history of the field of information services from ancient times to the present, with emphasis on documentation, information retrieval, and information science in the period of 1900 to the present; planning, development, and operation procedures, including program objectives and cost effectiveness data. An overview of the history, structure, and utilization of the RIS completes the package. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (SP)
