The Information needs of social workers by Maurice Bernard Line( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Semistructured, group interviews of a small number of social workers attempted to discover their information needs, problems and possible solutions. Results reported in this document are little more than impressionistic and indicative because of the small number of social workers interviewed and the type of information gathered. The major problem of social workers involves research information--what has been done, what results have been reported, and what research is in progress on any particular topic. In attempting to formulate a solution, three factors about social workers as regards information must be kept in mind: (1) lack of motivation for searching; (2) shortage of time for reading; and (3) overwhelming preference for informal communication. To reach solutions to the information problems of social workers, it is suggested that new trial services be developed and then evaluated in terms of their effect. (Sg)

The Design of Information Systems in the Social Sciences (disiss) is a research project with the objective of carrying out research necessary for the effective design of information systems in the social sciences, whether by the creation of new systems or the modification of existing systems. This working paper reports the work to date on the collection and analysis of citations taken from social sciences journals. The data will be used in part to describe the major parameters of the social science literature, and in part for the work on clustering. The purpose of this report is four-fold. First, the general problem of selecting source journals will be considered. Second, the procedure adopted for the disiss pilot citation study carried out in 1971 will be reviewed, together with a report of the study and an analysis of the findings. Third, the planning for the main disiss citation study will be considered in the light of the pilot study, and fourth, progress on the main study will be reported. (Related reports are li004401 and 004403.) (Author/SJ)
