Determination of User Needs and Future Requirements for a Systems Approach to Microform Technology.
Holmes, Donald C.
The objectives of this study is to identify the chief problem areas in microform technology and to direct attention to those upon which research should go forward immediately. Its constant focus is the needs of the user. The principal investigator undertook to gather the needed data by indepth interviews with individuals closely connected with all aspects of microform technology and use. These included library administrators, librarians responsible for direct supervision of microform collections, faculty members and other researchers, students, microform publishers and key personnel of other institutions which use microforms extensively. The data gathered were analyzed, interpreted, and refined in order to determine the more pressing problems involved in full utilization of microforms and what must be done to effect solutions. (JL)
