A Program to Provide for Increased Communication among Educational Information Centers. Final Report.
Sherman, C. Neil; And Others
This project was based on the preceding year's investigation and analysis of the educational information center community. The emphasis of the present contract was on increasing the communication among personnel involved in educational information work. The principal activity undertaken toward the achievement of this objective was the development, organization, and conduct of eight regional seminars. Related to this activity was the identification and selection of ten outstanding centers represented at the seminars. Visits were made to each, and narrative descriptions written. A third major task was the compilation of a revised and updated "Directory of Educational Information Centers." A survey was made of over 900 organizations to gather the necessary information for this second edition. Final copy has been submitted to the U.S. Office of Education as a separate product. Two additional tasks were performed. For the seminar program, a computer demonstration of the Corporation's on-line retrieval system (ORBIT) was prepared, using an ERIC data base. Second, the text for a revision of the "How to Use ERIC" brochure was written. (Author)
