Prospectus for a Chicano Periodical Index Project.
Seven Southwest Chicano library units propose to collaborate in the first cycle of the development and production of a Chicano Periodical Index. The units intend to provide library users with an indexing system which would improve access of Chicano periodical publications and to provide a model index for future development. The proposed project has four general levels of control and supervision: an advisory board; an Organizational Center; two regional coordinating centers; and seven participant sites. In the project's organizational phase, the Organizational Center would develop an organizational/procedural structure for generating a periodical index and would develop system implementation procedures. In the development phase, the Organizational Center would generate subject headings for the periodical index. Participants would generate a master list of serials that should be included and would select titles to index. In addition to indexing serials and training participants, the final implementation phase would include the production, review, field test, dissemination, and evaluation of the first run of the index. Project evaluation would involve the program director's progress reports, biannual site reports, and a report after the first 18 months. (SB)
