Phase 3 of a four part study was undertaken to investigate the use of scientific and technical information (STI) in the academic aerospace community. Phase 3 of this project used three questionnaires that were sent to three groups (i.e., faculty librarians, and students) in the academic aerospace community. Specific attention was paid to the types of STI used and the methods in which academic users acquire STI. This report focuses on the responses of academic libraries. Demographic information on academic aerospace libraries is provided. Data regarding NASA interaction with academic aerospace libraries is also included as is the survey instrument

Phase 3 of a four part study was undertaken to investigate the use of scientific and technical information (STI) in the academic aerospace community. Phase 3 of this project used three questionnaires that were sent to three groups (i.e., faculty, librarians, and students) in the academic aerospace community. Specific attention was paid to the types of STI used and the methods in which academic users acquire STI. This report focuses on the responses of two of the three groups: faculty in aerospace departments and students enrolled in USRA-funded capstone design courses. Respondents in both groups relied heavily upon informal sources of information, although students were less inclined to regard their personal collections of STI as important. Both groups relied upon most formal sources of STI about the same, but students reported more difficulty in using the formal resources

A study was conducted to provide NASA management with an initial look at the production and use of scientific and technical information (STI) at five NASA centers (Ames, Goddard, Langley, Lewis, and Marshall). The 550 respondents who were interviewed by telephone held favorable views regarding the NASA STI system. About 65% of the respondents stated that it is either very or somewhat important for them to publish their work through the NASA STI system. About 10% of those respondents encountered problems using the NASA STI system service for publication. The most frequently reported problem was the process is too time consuming (8.6%). Overall, those respondents using the NASA STI system to publish their work rated the system as excellent (24.6%) or good (37.6%). About 79% of the respondents stated that it is either very or somewhat important for them to use the NASA STI system to access information. About 25% of those respondents encountered problems using the NASA STI system to access information. The most frequently reported problems were the time and effort it takes to locate and obtain information through the system (14.4%). Overall, about 83% of the respondents stated that the NASA STI system is important to performing their work. Overall, about 73% of the respondents stated that the NASA STI system meets their information needs

Selected results from an investigation that focused on the factors motivating and impeding information-seeking by early career-stage (i.e., new) U.S. aerospace engineers and scientists are reported. Undertaken as a Phase 1 activity of the NASA/DoD Aerospace Knowledge Diffusion Research Project, this initial investigation used mail (self-reported) surveys to collect data from 312 members of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) who had converted their AIAA memberships from student to professional status and who had an average of 2.7 years of aerospace work experience. We reviewed literature that focused on the socialization of organizational newcomers and the factors that motivate and impede information-seeking by early career-stage professionals. Seven hypotheses, formulated from our review of the literature, were developed and tested. The results of the investigation add to our understanding of information-seeking by organizational newcomers by demonstrating some of the factors that motivate early career-stage U.S. aerospace engineers and scientists to engage in information-seeking

The U.S. government technical report is a primary means by which the results of federally funded research and development (R & D) are transferred to the U.S. aerospace industry. However, little is known about this information product in terms of its actual use, importance, and value in the transfer of federally funded R & D. Little is also known about the intermediary- based system that is used to transfer the results of federally funded R & D to the U.S. aerospace industry. To help establish a body of knowledge, the U.S. government technical report is being investigated as part of the NASA/DoD Aerospace Knowledge Diffusion Research Project. In this report, we summarize the literature on technical reports, present a model that depicts the transfer of federally funded aerospace R & D via the U.S. government technical report, and present the results of research that investigated aerospace knowledge diffusion vis-awis the technical report. To learn more about the preferences of U.S. aerospace engineers and scientists concerning the format of NASA Langley Research Center-authored technical reports, we surveyed 133 report producers (i.e., authors) and 137 report users. Questions covered such topics as (a) the order in which report components are read, (b)components used to determine if a report would be read, (c) those components that could be deleted, (d) the placement of such components as the symbols list, (e) the desirability of a table of contents, (f) the format of reference citations, (g) column layout and right margin treatment, and (h) and person and voice. Mail (self-reported) surveys were used to collect the data. The response rates for report producers (i.e., authors) was 68% and for users was 62%

A study was undertaken that investigated the relationship between the use of U.S. government technical reports by U.S. aerospace engineers and scientists and selected institutional and sociometric variables. Survey research is the methodology used for the study. Data were collected by means of a self- administered mail questionnaire. The approximately 34 000 members of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) served as the study population. The response rate for the survey was 70 percent. A dependent relationship was found to exist between the use of U.S. government technical reports and three of the institutional variables (academic preparation, years of professional aerospace work experience, and technical discipline). The use of U.S. government technical reports was found to be independent of all of the sociometric variables. The institutional variables best explain the use of U.S. government technical reports by U.S. aerospace engineers and scientists
