Acquisitions and Processing Manual: Procedures of the CEC Information Center.
Johnson, Renee P.; Carter, Wanda D.
The acquisitions and processing staff of the Council for Exceptional Children Information Center has prepared the manual in order to clarify and document procedures now in effect at the Center, to assist in training new personnel, and to provide a model for other information centers. All steps involved in the acquisition and processing of literature concerning exceptional children are described, including methods for acquiring documents for the Center's data base, processing abstracts (including bibliographic data and descriptors of these documents for entry onto a computer file), and publishing all abstracts in the Center's quarterly journal, Exceptional Child Education Abstracts. Guidelines for cataloging and keypunching are provided as are examples of all standard forms used in the acquisitioning and processing functions. Also described are procedures involved in processing abstracts for inclusion in Research in Education and procedures for processing journal citations for Current Index to Journals in Education, both of which are Educational Resources Information Center publications.
