Historical Review of Projects Funded under Title II-C of the Higher Education Act of 1965: Strengthening Research Library Resources, 1978-1981.
Based on information in Department of Education files and further comments from former project directors, this historical review of projects funded from fiscal years 1978 to 1981 under Title II-C of the Higher Education Act (HEA II-C) of 1965, as amended in 1976, looks at projects in collection development, preservation and conservation of major research library resources, and coordinated bibliographic control of serials and monographs. The need for nationwide bibliographic access to research library resources, the objectives and achievements of funded HEA II-C projects, and the mechanics of the HEA II-C program are described. It is recommended that future HEA II-C funding should support innovative demonstration projects which use new techniques to facilitate the information cycle, specifically to expose the research community to library resources and to disseminate information through alternative communication channels. Appendices consist of a summary of individual project achievements, sample scoring instruments for ranking project achievements, a list of the highest ranked scores by project by year, details of individual project budgets, the 1979-80 Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Library Index, and sample project analysis forms. A 48-item bibliography and 19 tables, charts, and graphs are provided. (ESR)
