The Development and Maintenance of a Computer Based Storage and Retrieval System for Language Literature. Final Report. Volume IV.
Guess, Doug; And Others
The report presents results of the development and field testing procedures of a computer based language library retrieval system as part of the Assessment of Language Training for Preschool Handicapped Children Project. The report focuses on the data processing system, the user's manual or thesaurus, the dissemination strategy, a cost analysis, ways to maintain the system, and a proposed maintenance budget. It is pointed out that a computer based language library storage and retrieval system could be designed to effectively provide users with general or specific segments of available language literature. Alternatives considered for maintaining and updating the system range from complete federal support to none. The option most strongly supported involves a maintenance plan where an organization such as the Kansas Neurological Institute would contract with the Bureau of Education for the Handicapped (BEH) to update and maintain the system. It is explained that through this plan, users could be required to pay for some portions of the service while BEH subsidized others. Among enclosures are a sample user's packet. (Author/SBH)
