The Women's Information Center Project. Final Report.
Burgard, Andrea M.
A six-month grant was made with Title I Higher Education Act funds from the Office of Human Relations Programs and matching funds from the University of Maryland's College of Library and Information Services to assess the feasibility of and develop plans for a special information center to serve student, faculty and staff women on the College Park campus. An in-depth study of a random sample of campus women established the need for such a center, and yielded data about information needs and information-seeking behavior of the women. It also laid the groundwork for future study of their attitudes toward the feminist movement. The Cantril self-anchoring scale was used. A center was designed, including the development of a thesaurus for information of interest and concern to women in the United States. Recommendations are made for the technical and administrative organization oof the center. (Author/SJ)
