A Profile of ERIC Microfiche Collection Sites.
Horne, Eleanor V.
Data is presented on 254 standing order customers (SOC's) representing 47 percent of those sites or organizations which have placed orders or subscriptions with the Educational Resource Information Center (ERIC) Document Reproduction Service (EDRS) to receive, on a regular and continuous basis, the entire microfiche output. ERIC SOC's were asked to provide information about eleven very broad aspects of their operation: (1) type of institution, (2) location of the ERIC collection and reference materials, (3) availability of equipment, (4) age and scope of the collection, (5) availability of ERIC reference tools, (6) users served, (7) services provided, (8) reactions to ERIC and ERIC tools, (9) staff and staff training, (10) receipt of ERIC materials, and (11) relationships with Central ERIC and clearinghouses. In addition, participating libraries were asked to provide comments and suggestions for the improvement of the ERIC system and to list any questions they wished to have answered. There are four major sections to this report. The first is primarily a tabular presentation of information; the second, a descriptive summary; the third, conclusions and recommendations; and the fourth, the Appendices. Appendices include the survey form, survey participants, and data on customer reactions, suggestions, and problems. (RC)
