Analysis of reference statistics reported in 1977 library general information survey by Neal K Kaske( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analysis of data collected from 3,000 academic libraries by the 1977 Library General Information Surveys reveals that library operating budgets, institutional enrollment, and library circulation are the best predictors of reference and directional transactions. Fifty-five percent of the transactions at reference service points are directional, while the remainder are reference transactions; university libraries report significantly higher numbers of transactions than either 4-year or 2-year colleges; and publicly controlled colleges report greater numbers than private institutions. Similarly, reference and directional transactions vary with total operating budget, collection and staff size, and enrollment. The picture is complicated, however, by intervariable relationships; E.G., university libraries tend to have larger operating budgets, staff, and collections. Under these conditions, regression analysis is a better procedure to predict the number of reference and directional transactions. (Author/RAA)
Library use instruction for engineering students by Rao Aluri( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instruction for students in the use of libraries and their resources has been neglected in engineering education. Librarians can team teach courses on technical writing and introduce students to the major information sources in their fields. They can give presentations, publish handbooks, bibliographies, and pathfinders on library resources, and present audiovisual programs for library orientation. Engineering instructors and administrators should realize that library resources are important, and that librarians are willing to work with the instructor in developing instructional programs to improve students' library skills. Advantages of such instruction to students are: (1) they can collect background information more efficiently; and (2) they have the opportunity without undue dependence on a instructor's guidance. A list of 13 hints on conducting a literature search, modified from University of Nebraska at Omaha courses to be more universal, is attached. (Author/KP)

Satisfaction of ESEA Title IV-B administration in Indiana public and non-public schools by John William Ellison( Book )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A study comparing the degree of satisfaction with the Indiana Division of Instructional Media's administration of the esea Title iv-b program during the 1979-80 school year reveals that both the public and nonpublic school systems showed a high level of satisfaction with the division's iv-b activities. Two separate questionnaires were designed and submitted to all 306 Indiana public and 326 nonpublic schools. Eighty percent of the public schools responded to the questionnaire, as opposed to 53 percent of the nonpublic schools. The completed questionnaires revealed that the public schools in particular showed strong positive satisfaction with the division's iv-b activities. Nonpublic school responses were positive, but the total number of responses limited interpretation to statistical findings. From the survey, there is no indication that major changes are required in the division's iv-b activities; however, it is suggested that consideration be given to making some minor adjustments or re-directions in activities currently taking place as part of the administrative function of the statewide program.

A Method for Correcting Typographical Errors in Subject Headings in Oclc Records. Research Report by Edward T O'Neill( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The error-correcting algorithm described was constructed to examine subject headings in online catalog records for common errors such as omission, addition, substitution, and transposition errors, and to make needed changes. Essentially, the algorithm searches the authority file for a record whose primary key exactly matches the test key. If an exact match is not found, the algorithm identifies records in the authority file, first with the same initial characters, or if that is unsuccessful, with similar endings. The heading is then examined to see if by making simple changes, it can be modified to match a valid record in the authority file. If no match can be found, even after modification, it is then assumed that the heading is one of questionable validity--being either a valid heading with no corresponding record in the author file or an invalid heading containing extensive errors. The algorithm separates the subject headings into groups of valid headings, corrected headings, and questionable headings that require manual examination. Provided are one table, five figures, and 21 references. (Author/RBF)

Subject Heading Patterns in Oclc Monographic Records. Research Report by Edward T O'Neill( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An analysis of a sample of 33,455 monographic records taken from the oclc (Ohio College Library Center) database found that 94 percent of the sample's 50,213 subject headings were Library of Congress (lc) subject headings. Each record had an average of 1.4 lc subject headings; however, 18.6 percent of the records had no lc subject headings assigned to them. Topical subject headings accounted for 70 percent of all lc subject headings, and 62 percent of all records contained at least one lc topical subject heading. Geographic subject headings accounted for 15 percent of the records. Each lc subject heading had an average of 0.78 subdivisions associated with it. Form divisions were the most common type found, followed closely by place and topical subdivisions. Period subdivisions were used relatively infrequently. (Author)
