A Study of Microfiche as an Alternative to the Reserve Room Function.
Ficke, Eleanore R.
A study was conducted at the University of Denver to compare the effectiveness of microfiche as opposed to textbooks, photocopying, or reserve room reading for a library science reading assignment. Assigned material was copied on microfiche and given to each student. The results were measured by analyzing data gathered using student diaries, questionnaires, and a time-sampling of the use of microfiche readers in the library. The results were positive. Students stated that they would be willing to pay for microfiche copies of assignments in other classes because of their experience with the equipment. Questionnaire forms, diary and survey sheets, and data summaries are appended. (Author/DS)
