Shercliff, W. H.; And Others
The College of Education Libraries Research Project was commissioned by the Department of Education and Science at Didsbury College of Education, Manchester, England. The topics investigated included the aims and objectives of college of education libraries, effective use of library materials, funding, book selection methods, staffing requirements, staff and student library use, and student book buying habits. Data for the report were gathered from surveys, questionnaires, use studies, circulation analyses, existing statistics, inventories, budgets, and various types of visits and investigations. The study was comprehensive, covering all the standard in-house library functions, plus interlibrary loans, audiovisual materials, and bookstores. There are numerous tables, statistics, and graphs interspersed throughout the text. The appendixes are in a separate volume (IR 001 265). (LS)
