This project, started in 1989, is designed to explore the diffusion of scientific and technical information (STI) throughout the aerospace industry. The increased international competition and cooperation in the industry promises to significantly affect the STI demands of U.S. aerospace engineers and scientists. Therefore, it is important to understand the aerospace knowledge diffusion process itself and its implications at the individual, organizational, national and international levels. The project is planned in four phases. Phase 1, reported here, is designed to study the information-seeking methods of U.S. aerospace engineers and scientists. Phase 2 is concerned primarily with the transfer of STI in government and industry and the role of librarians and technical information specialists in that transfer. Phase 3 locks at the use of STI in the academic aerospace community. Phase 4 will examine knowledge production, use, and transfer of STI among non-U.S. aerospace organizations and aerospace engineers and scientists

Engineering work and information use in aerospace: results of a telephone survey by Thomas E Pinelli( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A telephone survey of U.S. aerospace engineers and scientists who were on the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) mailing list was conducted between August 14-26, 1991. The survey was undertaken to obtain information on the daily work activities of aerospace engineers and scientists, to measure various practices used by aerospace engineers and scientists to obtain STI, and to ask aerospace engineers and scientists about their use of electronic networks. Coworkers were found important sources of information. Co-workers are used to obtain technical information because the information they have is relevant, not because co-workers are accessible. As technical uncertainty increases so does the need for information internal and external to the organization. Electronic networks enjoy widespread use within the aerospace community. These networks are accessible and they are used to contact people at remote sites. About 80% of the respondents used electronic mail, file transfer, and information or data retrieval related to commercial or in-house data bases. .

Study of High School Seniors Phi Delta Kappa 1986 by Terry F White( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1986 study of high school seniors addresses two topics. First, it reports seniors' attitudes toward and opinions about school, teachers, and school problems. Second, it compares the attitudes and opinions of high school seniors with those of Americans in general and those expressed by parents of high school students. Responses to questions in the following areas are reported: (1) attitudes concerning teachers and the teaching profession; (2) the quality of schools; (3) school activities; (4) school policies and practices; (5) the most serious problems facing public schools; (6) national testing; (7) liking school; (8) future plans of students; and (9) seniors, work, and money. Results are reported in percentages and comparisons are made with previous studies. Information on methodology and on the comparison studies are contained in an appendix. Disaggregated responses are shown for race, sex, type of school, and student grades. (Vm)
NASA/DoD Aerospace Knowledge Diffusion Research Project. Report Number 8. Summary Report to Phase 3, Faculty and Student Respondents( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

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
NASA/DoD Aerospace Knowledge Diffusion Research Project. Report Number 7. Summary Report to Phase 2 Respondents Including Frequency Distributions( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Phase 2 of the four phase NASA/DoD Aerospace Knowledge Diffusion Research Project was undertaken to investigate the transfer of scientific and technical information (STI) from government to the aerospace industry and the role of librarians and technical information specialists in the transfer process. Data were collected through a self-administered mailback questionnaire. Libraries identified as holding substantial aerospace or aeronautical technical report collections were selected to receive the questionnaires. Within each library, the person responsible for the technical report was requested to answer the questionnaire. Questionnaires were returned from approximately 68 percent of the libraries. The respondents indicated that scientists and engineers are not aware of the services available from libraries/technical information centers and that scientists and engineers also under-utilized their services. The respondents also indicated they should be more involved in the process. Knowledge diffusion, Knowledge transfer, NASA technical reports, User study, STI

NASA/DOD Aerospace Knowledge Diffusion Research Project. Report Number 5. Summary Report to Phase 1 Respondents Including Frequency Distributions( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Phase 1 of a four part study was undertaken investigating the use of scientific and technical information (STI) by U.S. aerospace engineers and scientists. Specific attention was paid to institutional and sociometric variables and to the step-by-step process of information gathering used by the respondents. Data were collected by means of three self-administered mail-back questionnaires. The approximately 34,000 members of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) served as the study population. More than 65 percent of the randomly selected respondents returned the questionnaires in each of the three groups. Respondents relied more heavily upon informal sources of information than formal sources and turned to librarians and other technical information specialists only when they did not obtain results via informal means or their own formal searches. Report includes frequency distributions for the questions. Knowledge diffusion, Knowledge transfer, NASA technical reports, User study, STI
