Turned-on Advising: Computer and Video Resources for Educational Advising.
Riedinger, Edward A.
This document informs advisers about nonprint information sources on college programs, college adjustment, preparation for college entrance examinations, financial aid, and career planning. The perspective is international; items aimed exclusively at an American audience are avoided. The first chapter concentrates on computer resources for advising--software on compact disks, diskettes, and videodisks. This chapter also concentrates on videotapes, most of which are less than one hour in length. The last chapter brings together printed resources on nonprint materials for advising. Each entry gives the title, date of production, equipment specifications such as type of computer operating system, price, vendor or producer, and a description of the item's contents. Items are coded with symbols indicating whether "essential to overseas advising" or "would be useful as a reference resource," as appropriate. Other features include a list of distributors, procedures, publishers and subject and title indexes. (BEW)
