Mattas, Frank W.
The San Mateo Educational Resources Center (SMERC) has, since 1969, been operating an educational information and dissemination center, providing "Research in Education" (RIE), "Current Index to Journals in Education" (CIJE), periodical, book, and locally collected fugitive materials for educators within San Mateo County and other counties, institutions, professional associations, and similar agencies throughout California and the Western region. In 1971, the U. S. Office of Education (and latterly, the National Institute of Education) granted funds to SMERC to develop satellite information centers in the Northern, Southern, and Central Valley regions of California; to improve the acquisitions program of the Center; to improve search services to clientele primarily through developing computer access to RIE and CIJE; and to develop bases for continuing evaluation of the Center's services. In addition, a small grant was made for purposes of training others in information service operation. As a result of this grant, SMERC is to serve as a model for other states and regions wishing to establish educational information systems. This is the final report of the California Integrated Network of Educational Information Services Project, as the grant was referred to in its original proposal. As such it covers activities from July 1, 1971 to June 30, 1973. (Author/SJ)
