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

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 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)
The Information needs of social workers by Maurice Bernard Line( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 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)
