Generalized Method for the User Evaluation of Purchased Information Services. First Quarterly Report (June 27 to September 30, 1975).
Hall, Homer J.
The first year of a two-year project to develop a method for user evaluation of purchased scientific and technical information services was directed at those services which provide information without interpretive evaluation or analysis. Using a case history approach, factors were identified to be used in composing a matrix of parameters and variables for the user to apply in selecting between competing services of this type. The matrix approach was selected because of the varying importance of quantitative, qualitative, and business judgement factors to different types of decision maker. (Author/PF)
