Auster, Ethel; Lawton, Stephen B.
This report of the EISO project, the responsibility of which is the operation of an online bibliographic search service for educators of Ontario, concentrates on research findings collected after EISO had been operational for 16 months. The organization, role, and level of satisfaction of EISO users are treated, the system's impact on a school board in the Northeastern region of Ontario is outlined, and the economics of operating an online bibliographic retrieval and duplication service are assessed. A state-of-the-art review of the ERIC data base search services in Canada is also included, as well as a discussion of alternative organizational structures for EISO. Appendices include samples of the evaluation questionnaire used to collect data on users, the pamphlet and brochure publicizing EISO, and order forms for copies of original materials. (Author/MBR)
