Orientation of Educators and Behavioral Scientists to Information Systems. Final Report.
Gates, Jesse L.; Altman, James W.
The project was designed to orient educators and behavioral scientists to information systems capable of supplying work-related data. This goal was accomplished in two ways: (1) a series of seminars was held at the annual conventions of the American Sociological Association, the American Psychological Association, the American Vocational Association, and the American Educational Research Association, and (2) a handbook of information sources in education and the behavioral sciences was developed. Seminar content included discussions of information flow use phases and purposes in seeking information, system-user interfacial characteristics and projected future trends in information systems. The handbook includes secions on guides and directories, multidisciplinary information centers, specialized information centers, data repositories, and abstracting and indexing services. (Author)
