An overview of the Library services and construction act--title I by System Development Corporation( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document reports the results of the first comprehensive analysis of the effects of Federal funds on public library services in the United States. Using a case-study approach, a team studied Federally funded public-library projects in 11 states, interviewing State library agency and local public library personnel in each state. The results of the study have two implications for Federal library-services policy: (1) that the formula by which the Library Services and Construction Act funds are allocated to the States should be revised to more realistically reflect State and local attitudes toward public library service, and (2) that the U.S. Office of Education should assume national leadership in the development of research, professional-training, and interlibrary coordination programs.

Image interpreter screening performance as affected by resolution, presentation rate, and scale by J. Richard Lepkowski( )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study measured performance levels of image interpreters, using both direct viewing and viewing with magnification, to screen 70mm photographic imagery moving at six different rates and varying in scale and resolution. The resolution of the imagery was varied to simulate imagery obtained with different transmission bandwidths. The results were as follows. (1) There is little loss in screening accuracy at any level of resolution and/or magnification for frame presentation rates of 6.0 to 1.5 sec/frame with the 1:2,000 scale imagery and 6.0 to 2.0 sec/frame for the 1:4,000 scale imagery. (2) In general, the poorer the image resolution, the lower the screening accuracy. (3) For constant display format and image resolution, screening accuracy is significantly greater for the larger scale display. (4) Two-power optical magnification of the photographic imagery resulted in a decrease in screening accuracy. Increasing viewing time for magnified imagery by a factor of four so that the incremental area viewed per second was equated for direct and magnified viewing resulted in no significant difference between the two viewing conditions. Tradeoffs are possible between and among the factors of scale, presentation rate, and resolution. (Author)
The Public library and Federal policy by Jean B Wellisch( Book )

4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a grant from the U.S. Office of Education, the System Development Corporation undertook a study to assist the federal government in defining its relationship to public libraries over the next decade. The first objective was to analyze the public library as an information-providing agency and to identify the major problems and issues of the library. The public library was considered in terms of its history, the number and types of libraries, political and administrative organization, financing and staffing, present services and evaluation of those services, utilization and image of the library, public library systems and relationships with other institutions and developing trends in public libraries. The second objective of the study was to develop recommendations for future Federal support roles relevant and responsive to the public library situation. The recommendations were based on the analysis of the library situation and an analysis of Federal information dissemination policy. Information for the study was gathered through a review of the literature, library project site visits, input from prominent librarians and a Delphi study. (Jg)
EDP systems in public management; [proceedings] by Geoffrey Yates Cornog( Book )

Directory of academic library consortia by Donald V Black( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this directory is to identify and describe all academic library consortia in the continental United States that satisfy the following specified criteria for inclusion: participating institutions must be autonomous, more than half the members must be academic libraries, two or more libraries must be involved, library consortia must be separate from university consortia with the goal of improving library services, the consortium must be beyond the exploratory stages, and organized so as to benefit the academic participants involved. Each entry, verified by the submitting institution, lists the geographical area served, participants and year joined, purpose and objectives, current activities, conditions of participation, annual budget and source, staffing, advisory boards, publications, headquarters address, and information source. Statistical tables summarize the directory entries by activity, and along dimensions such as age, size, membership, staffing and budget information. Three indexes are provided, to help users locate consortia by name, State or type of activity. A selected bibliography is included. (The Supplement to the directory is li 004 174. Phases I and ii of the preliminary studies are available as ed 057 825 and 057 826.) (Author/SJ)

Multi-access computing: modern research and requirements by Paul H., Ed Rosenthal( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is developed from the proceedings of a symposium sponsored by the Office of Naval Research and the System Development Corporation. It presents a survey and a practical guide for formulating individual application requirements and forecasting future availability of data processing capabilities. Part I consists of seven articles covering scientific analysis computation, process control systems, administrative data processing systems analysis, and other applications. The three articles in Part ii outline the work of System Development Corporation, Rand Corporation, and Stanford Research Institute. Part iii has ten articles which review research projects underway at Bell Labs, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Mitre Corporation, California Institute of Technology, the United States Air Force, and other institutions. Part iv concludes with two articles which discuss policy considerations for the future. (Ch)
An analysis of the cost and effectiveness of compensatory education by Gerald C Sumner( Book )

6 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report on Compensatory Education (ce) examines the cost effectiveness of instructional programs and outcomes for reading and mathematics. Included are a description and comparison of services for elementary school students in Title I programs, other ce programs and regular instruction programs. Also reported are the results of student academic achievement as measured by Form s of the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills, fall and spring percentile norms and vertical scale conversions based on the projected national score distributions from the ses in the first year of the study. Cost effectiveness is assessed by subsetting the student sample in terms of multiple displays of average costs and achievement scores, and by estimating regression coefficients which relate achievement gain to cost. It is concluded that where program costs are held constant, funding source does not appear to have an independent effect on educational outcome. It is also suggested that ce is relative more cost effective in the lower grades. (Author/JCD)
