A Report and Evaluation of the OECA-Integrated Projects V.T.R. Project at Chinguacousy Public Library in Bramalea, Ontario, January 1974-June 1974.
Henderson, John; And Others
In 1974, the Ontario Educational Communications Authority (OECA) undertook a study to measure the feasibility of loaning video tape recording equipment and video tapes to home users. A pilot program in one branch library found that, with the assistance of a video instruction package and an instructional booklet, users quickly mastered the operation of the apparatus, and they required very little assistance from the librarian. Questionnaires and observations made by the library staff showed that the instructional experience set up by the library was well received, and little technical difficulty was experienced, but additional publicity will be necessary to promote the use of the equipment by a broader public. The appendixes of this document include the project design, questionnaires, the instructional booklet, and a collection of personal views on the effectiveness of the program. (EMH)
