Selective Dissemination of Microfiche Documents in a University Setting - Phase I. Project CLR-561.
Meredith, J. C.
Governors State University (Illinois) has developed and studied a system of selective dissemination of microfiche documents. Twenty-six faculty members in science and engineering were interviewed in depth to determine their information needs, interest categories, and descriptors to be used in searches. Individual profiles were constructed for each faculty member. These were sent to National Technical Information Service (NTIS), which then retrieved documents from its data base on a regular basis for the faculty. Some changes at NTIS, and the categorical structure used, made the service less relevant than it might have been and somewhat difficult to use. A table listing numbers of documents sent and charges is attached, as is a list of categories. (LS)
