Computer-Based Systems for Increasing Information Access to School Media Center Materials. Final Report.
Hines, Theodore C.; And Others
The project presented here explored the possibility of using computer-based systems to increase information access to non-text children's materials at the pre-school through elementary (6th grade) school levels. This final report includes an indicative summary as well as ten separate papers that describe a range of applications of proven computer techniques to school media center materials: (1) "Computer Access to Children's Media"; (2) "School Media Programs and Networking: A Position Paper"; (3) "Elimination of Redundancy in Keyboarding Bibliographic Data for Computer-Based Information Systems"; (4) "Subject Headings for Children's Materials"; (5) "Computer-Based Production of School Media Center Reference Tools"; (6) "Computer Searching of Materials for Children"; (7) "A Multi-Level Approach to Computer-Based Control of Indexing Vocabularies"; (8) "Children's Media Data Bank and Information Center: A Library Research and Demonstration Project"; (9) "A Generalized Test and Quiz Program"; and (10) "A Computerized Technique for Producing Cloze Text Materials." Project findings suggest important implications at the national, regional and local levels. Detailed reporting is planned for a later date. (Author/JD)
