ERIC Resource Management Workshops--Final Report on Workshops for Standing Order Customers.
Robbins, J. Nevin
A series of workshops was conducted to enhance the information management capability of organizations maintaining complete files of ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) materials, such as microfiche collections, indexes, and related materials. Invitations to attend meetings in their respective regions were extended to 677 organizations which have standing orders to receive most ERIC materials. Twenty-six regional workshops were conducted from November, 1978, through July, 1979, by the staffs of all sixteen ERIC Clearinghouses. The ERIC Clearinghouse on Adult, Career, and Vocational Education served as the administrative agent for the implementation of the project. The project resulted in two principal outcomes: (1) the provision of information management service to eighty-two percent of ERIC's Standing Order Customers (SOCs) in the United States and its territories and (2) the acquisition of valuable information on the characteristics and needs of those SOCs. Certain consistencies among the comments and opinions of workshop participants were observed in several areas, including the following: SOC concerns about ERIC tools and materials; the channels of communication between SOCs and ERIC; SOC use of ERIC resources; and needs for expanded ERIC service to SOCs. (Summaries of the findings are described in the text; detailed statistics are presented in the appendices, which comprise a major portion of this document.) (BM)
