Claffey, Joan M.; And Others
Designed to identify the information and knowledge resource needs of persons working in the area of women in development (WID), this study analyzed inquiries directed to the Non-Formal Education (NFE) Information Center to determine the nature and frequency of requests and the variables that distinguish kinds of WID interests and resource needs. This report includes a statement of the problem, a description of the research design and methodology, an extensive analysis of the data including 28 graphs, a glimpse of WID-related inquiries received since the formal data collection process, and an assessment of current trends. The report summary discusses implications for the generation and exchange of knowledge concerning WID, the meaning of different development orientations for researchers and practitioners, the role of networking, the dynamics between research and application, and strategies for providing for differential and complex WID knowledge and research needs. Appendices provide further information on the NFE center publications, the coding instrument, and information about the research staff. (RAA)
