A Guidebook to Guidebooks. An Urban Environmental Education Resource Book.
Wurman, Richard Saul; And Others
This guide is a brief description of the many possibilities in theme, form, content, and organization of guidebooks that students can produce. All of the sample guides included in this booklet share a common definition: a guidebook is any organized record of observations made about physical and other resources, presented in a manner which make this record understandable and useful to other people and enables them to access these resources. This booklet provides a number of models which a class may use in preparing a resource guidebook for use in their environment. The area to be covered, interest groups, vantage points, and processes are covered in Section 1. Section 2 is a collection of tables of contents, which provide the student with examples of information and resource topics. The tables are annotated to call attention to and explain important points. Section 3 deals with accessing resources, people, places, processes, and printed materials. A checklist, and advice on mapping, interviewing, and statistics are also included. (Author/TK)
