UNESCO CD-ROM. Prototype Evaluation Summary.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This document reports the result of a study carried out to evaluate the installation and use of the UNESCO CD-ROM prototype. A questionnaire in English and French was sent to about 267 institutions around the world. Replies were received from 97 bodies, giving a response rate of about 36%. Almost all respondents were information professionals in charge of staff, and the sample was composed chiefly of public bodies and large organizations. Results from the survey included the following information: the UNESCO CD-ROMs are usually installed in reference rooms and available on a self-service basis; installation was considered easy by 94.8% of the respondents; the instructions for installation found in the user manual were considered appropriate; the number of databases held by the organizations surveyed was large and included MEDLINE, ERIC, UNESCO, and PSYCLIT; the satisfaction rate for the CD-ROM was 78.4%; and the CD-ROM was considered easy to use by 85.6% of the respondents. Several graphs present data, and the questionnaire used in the study is included. (JLB)
