Communication Satellites and Social Services; Focus on Users and Evaluations. An Annotated Bibliography.
Filep, Robert T.; And Others
The purpose of this bibliography is two fold: To review the 1970-75 literature on communication satellites with particular emphasis on social applications, experiments, and evaluation; and to provide future satellite planners and evaluators with a convenient overview of specific experiences. The review includes documents dealing with past, current, and planned applications, experiments, and evaluations of domestic and international satellite projects. Many of the sources give data on types of users, numbers of individuals involved, estimated cost per instruction hour, and program content. A section is provided wherein key words developed for each annotation are grouped by categories for reference. No attempt is made to include every published work in the annotated section, nor do the authors claim to have accessed all written material in this rapidly developing field. However, to assist the user who requires further investigation or information, a selected general bibliography is also provided. (Author/HB)
