Technology Transfer: A Selected Bibliography.
Sovel, M. Terry
This bibliography of 428 items, a product of the NASA-sponsored Project for the Analysis of Technology Transfer (PATT) at the University of Denver's Research Institute (DRI), is the initial attempt at compiling a comprehensive listing on the subject of technology transfer. The bibliography is further concerned with information which leads to a greater understanding of the factors affecting the transfer process--the barriers and incentives to the process. A partial information base on technology transfer was gathered in performing DRI studies; and with the establishment of the PATT library, an intensive data collection effort was begun. The items, most of which are in the PATT library collection, represent a screening of the available literature and include mostly primary sources. Material was acquired through: interviews with technical information experts in the U.S. government, surveys of several library collections strong in technical information, reviews of bibliographies on the subject, letters to major authors in the field, personal contacts, and monitoring of several abstracting services. An intensive review of the bibliography was performed by knowledgeable people in the field. The bibliography is arranged alphabetically, with author and keyword in context (KWIC) indexes. A statement of PATT library policy is appended. (Author/JB)
