Information Retrieval Demonstration and Research Project. Final Report.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Center for Studies in Vocational and Technical Education.
The information retrieval demonstration and research project was designed to demonstrate the computer terminal system of information retrieval from a central computer. Specifically, the system concentrated on computer searching of the ERIC system. The demonstrations took place by locating nine terminals in volunteer districts and conducting inservice training to acquaint the people with its use. The research component was twofold; first an attempt was made to identify alternate educational applications of the computer terminal for the districts and second, an analysis of staff usage over a four-month period has been evaluated and documented as to type and extent of activities. Results to date show a generally favorable acceptance of the system, as well as a growing use of the computer terminals in obtaining information for curriculum development and for research. A location list of materials and glossary of useful terms are followed by appendixes, comprising four-fifths of the document. They give general information on the Academic Computing Center, the operation of the WISE-ONE computer system, copies of overhead projections, and samples of forms used in the system. (Author/NH)
