Information Systems for the Human Services. Project SHARE. Human Services Bibliography Series.
Department of Health and Human Services, Rockville, MD. Project Share.
The 48 abstracts in the Project SHARE bibliography deal with the use of computerized information systems in day care, education, public assistance, and mental health and local government settings. Effects of standardization on human services and issues of privacy and confidentiality are two of the important questions raised by these documents. Projects and pilot programs of varying success are presented, along with analyses of the benefits reaped and the problems encountered. In addition to computerized data systems, other forms of information dissemination--"talkback radio," referral directories, and interactive cable television--are discussed. The bibliography, which provides a representative but not exhaustive sampling of the topic, is divided into three sections: the abstracts with full citations arranged alphabetically by author, a listing of personal or corporate authors, and an index of titles.
