A Research Project to Determine the Student Acceptability and Learning Effectiveness of Microform Collections in Community Junior Colleges: Phase III. Final Report.
The American Association of Community and Junior Colleges launched the Microform Project in 1969 under a contract with the U.S. Office of Education. The major product of Phase I (1969-1970) was a bibliography of resource materials used in 10 courses of study at community colleges (see ED 040 708). During Phase II (1970-1971), a series of pilot studies explored the procedural and environmental problems relating to microform utilization, and probed the matters of student acceptance and learning effectiveness of microforms (see ED 071 662). In Phase III (1972-1973), a microform handbook, consisting of six chapters, a bibliography, and appendices, was developed. It serves as a primer for educators who wish to consider the applicability and adequacy of microform systems at their respective institutions. This final report summarizes each of the three phases, describes the handbook, and presents the conclusions and recommendations of the project staff. In addition, as appendix provides a reprint of a paper titled "A Medium for Spies. . . . and Community Colleges" by Dale Gaddy. (Author/DB)
