Materials Center Collections and Procedures: Suggested Modifications.
Davis, Larry L.
This description of a three year project of services to educators by the Kentucky Department of Education Materials Center includes the current collections, future collections, and the anticipated procedures necessary to provide optimum service and best utilize those materials. The plan involves better coordination between the three major components of the Kentucky system--the curriculum laboratory, materials center, and retrieval services--by conversion of subject headings from Sears to ERIC as a major change strategy. A flow chart of the information retrieval process is included. Appendices display the comparative cost of ERIC searches using DIALOG and WISE, circulation records for the materials center in 1977, a general request form, a facsimile printout of a materials center request, an ERIC search printout including RIE and CIJE, a categorical breakdown classification system, and sample computer printout of ERIC searches.
