Humphrey, Allan J.
Findings of a survey of 29 selected information centers that use computers to search the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) data base in batch mode are reported. The survey was conducted from December 1972 to May 1973. The report includes some general observations based on the information gathered, a brief description of two "typical" centers surveyed, more detailed descriptions of twenty individual information centers, and a table of selected data from all 29 centers. Descriptions of individual installations include information concerning services offered, mode of operation, interface with clients, charges levied for services, computing hardware and software used, staffing, and other topics.
