A Research Design for a Comprehensive Study of the Use, Bibliographic Control, and Distribution of Government Publications. Final Report.
Fry, Bernard M.; And Others
Current conditions and trends in government publications at the Federal, State, and local (municipal, etc.) levels with respect to use, bibliographic control and distribution of such publications are analyzed. A research design for a comprehensive study project which would produce specific recommendations for nationwide action aimed at more effective bibliographic control and distribution, and enhanced accessibility and use, of government publications is presented. Part I gives a summary of the principal conclusions and recommendations of the report and provides general introductory, historical and background information about the report itself. Part II deals with common aspects of the problem areas (use, bibliographic control, and distribution) of government publications that permeate all three levels of such publications. Part III is a discussion of the three levels separately in terms of the same problem areas in order to examine particular manifestations at each level. Part IV presents the Design Study's recommendations and recommended research design for a comprehensive study based on the presentations, analyses and evaluations in previous parts of this report.
