Information requirements of college of education lecturers and schoolteachers by Maurice Bernard Line( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lecturers in colleges of education were surveyed using semistructured, group (3-5 persons) interviews. Information requirements for lecturers involved in research means the retrieval and use of large numbers of facts or references. Lecturers engaged in teaching only, however, need to know where to find specific pieces of information. The problem for college of education lecturers is that they require a relatively small amount of information from a large body of information. The amount must be small enough to be assimilated in a restricted time, but comprehensive enough to avoid distortion. Lecturers reflect the following attributes in seeking information: (1) restricted time for gathering and use; (2) lack of motivation for information seeking; and (3) limited informal contacts with colleagues. School teachers were also interviewed in groups, using an exploratory approach so that rather subjective impressions resulted. Because only a small number were interviewed, the results are presented here more to provoke further study than to give a representative sample of information needs. For school teachers, information gathering must require minimal effort and low motivation, and it must be relevant and show little distortion. (Sg)
Citation patterns in the social sciences : results of pilot citation study and selection of source journals for main citation study by J. Michael Brittain( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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)
