Development and Demonstration of a Statistical Data Base System for Library and Network Planning and Evaluation. Second Quarterly Report.
Jones, Dennis P.; And Others
This report summarizes the accomplishments and activities of the project during the second quarter. An intensive search of the literature continued for data elements, outcome measures, and background information. A great deal of time and effort were devoted to the location, compilation, and comparison of extant data elements employed in collecting today's library statistics and to the preparation of two draft documents providing the structural framework for the Library Statistical Data Base. The selection of members for the national advisory board was completed and the first meeting scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C. on February 5, 1977. The possibility of testing the system in selected Oklahoma public libraries is being investigated. Additionally, inquiries have been made regarding participation of the Reference Section, Statistical Coordinating Committee of the ALA. The financial report indicated that expenditures are essentially on target. (Author/AP)
