Directory of Resources in Adult Education.
Grabowski, Stanley M., Comp.; Glenn, Ann C., Comp.
With the emergence of adult education as a separate and distinct area of professionalism, there has been recognized a need for some kind of publication to guide the uninitiated to the sources of information that they need. The directory was developed with this objective in mind. The document consists of seven sections of adult education information sources: (1) national adult education associations--containing a brief description of the intent and services of each organization; (2) adult education periodicals--outlining the scope of each periodical; (3) information systems--listing the locations of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) microfiche collections, the 16 ERIC Clearinghouses, and other information systems, with a brief outline of their scope; (4) information search services--listing computer search services using the ERIC data base; (5) other resources--a list of individuals and agencies that may be of assistance in information gathering; (6) graduate programs in adult education--sources of information and relevant documents are cited; and (7) adult education documents--several adult education "classics" are noted together with a list of adult education publications.
