Fry, Bernard M.
The purpose of this study was to examine the use made of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) products and services by members of the educational community, and in this context to evaluate the extent to which the ERIC system is achieving its objectives of guaranteeing ready access to the nation's current significant literature in the field of education. The report is prepared in four volumes and a summary volume. This, the summary volume, contains the introduction and summary of findings and recommendations. The findings presented in the summary are designed to call attention to conditions, trends, and issues concerning use and user reactions to ERIC products and services. The purpose is to provide a concise, analytical basis on which to evaluate the extent to which ERIC has met its goals, and to identify deficiencies and weaknesses. The recommendations presented in Part II of Chapter 2 propose needed improvements and courses of action to correct deficiencies identified by this study. (The other four volumes of this study are available as LI 003629 through 003632). (Author/NH)
