In every recent study of education beyond the high school the 2-year college has been considered as a possible solution to the problem of serving adequately the great flood of students that will soon be receiving their high school diploma. The importance of these institutions in meeting the desirable goals of decentralization and diversification is only now being fully realized. The type of 2-year college needed is being considered by many districts and States, and in each case there is the reasonable request for information regarding what has been done before and how can we gain from the experience of others. In response to these many requests and in keeping with the functions of the Office of Education, the Division of Higher Education is presenting this annotated bibliography of projects, surveys, and studies relating to the 2-year community college, the junior college, and the technical institute. The bibliography covers the period from 1953 to 1957 and indicates whether the item described was completed or underway on October 1, 1957. This bibliography has been prepared to provide an overview of the scope and nature of recent junior college projects, surveys, and studies, and of projects, surveys and studies having implications for the junior college; to stimulate further investigations as they seem necessary and appropriate; and to encourage the application of the findings toward the continued improvement of 2-year institutions. Two appendixes present: (1) Questionnaire; and (2) Library Data. An index is included. [Best copy available has been provided.]
