The Effects Of Classification Systems On Management And Access In Selected Elementary School Libraries, Ellen L. Miller Jul 1986

The Effects Of Classification Systems On Management And Access In Selected Elementary School Libraries, Ellen L. Miller

Theses and Dissertations in Urban Services - Urban Education

Without an adequate access and delivery system for "easy" books, young children are locked out of the vast literary resources of elementary school libraries. The research described in this dissertation was conducted for the purpose of investigating the extent to which a variation in classification systems corresponded to variations in management and access. Elm's Classification System and H. W. Wilson's "E" classification for "easy" books were the two systems involved in the study.

In the spring of 1985, a questionnaire was mailed to 38 librarians in the public school systems in four cities in the Tidewater Area of ...

The Role Of The Library In The Micro Age, Antoinette Paris Greider Sep 1984

The Role Of The Library In The Micro Age, Antoinette Paris Greider

Library Presentations

The 1970s is seen as the decade that automated the technical processes in the library. Mainframe computers and minicomputers enable us to automate some of the most tedious tasks such as typing catalog cards, keeping track of circulation records and generating book orders. The 1970s also saw the advent and mastering of searching major reference tools electronically.

The 1980s brings a new development with the age of the microcomputer. Libraries can now do many of their processes with a microcomputer in house. They can create data bases, tailor make bibliographies, generate handouts and issue reports to meet their needs. Home ...

The Effect Of Unions On Productivity In The Public Sector: The Case Of Municipal Libraries, Ronald G. Ehrenberg, Joshua L. Schwarz

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] This paper represents our initial efforts at analyzing the effects of unions on productivity in the public sector. We first sketch an analytical framework that can be used to estimate these effects, focusing for expository purposes on municipal public libraries. We initially focus on libraries because considerable effort has been devoted to conceptualizing productivity measures for them and because of the availability of data to implement the framework. After discussing the analytical framework, we present preliminary estimtes of the effects of unions on productivity in public libraries based upon analyses of data from 71 municipal libraries in Massachusetts.

Introducing Online Search Services Using Videotape, Carol Tenopir, Barbara Bird Oct 1981

Introducing Online Search Services Using Videotape, Carol Tenopir, Barbara Bird

School of Information Sciences -- Faculty Publications and Other Works

The medium of videotape is well suited for introductory presentations about online searching. Several library schools and vendors have created videotaped instructions for novice searchers, but some libraries have now begun to use the medium to produce introductions aimed at potential patrons of their online search services. Reports of several of these presentations are examined in this paper. The library at the University of Hawaii at Manoa produced several videotapes to introduce online search services to their patrons. The problems encountered, uses and potential of these productions are discussed.

The Past As Future, Antje B. Lemke Jan 1972

The Past As Future, Antje B. Lemke

The Courier

As soon as man began to record information, he faced two questions: how to find material that was durable enough to preserve his message, and how to find material that was easy to handle, could be drawn on quickly and could be carried with ease. Stone seemed to be the least perishable substance, but while it was ideal for monuments in honor of gods or rulers, it certainly was not practical for business transactions or scholarly pursuits. Thus, from the beginning of writing to our day, those who have been concerned with communication - publishers, librarians and all who write or ...

The Courier

Roger McDonough relates the changes to academic libraries that confronted librarians in the early 1970s. Along with problems of civil unrest, the libraries were faced with shrinking budgets and drastic changes in library methodology.

University Library Problems And Trends, Robert Bingham Downs Oct 1970

University Library Problems And Trends, Robert Bingham Downs

The Courier

One of the interesting phenomena of the current era is that libraries have begun to occupy the center of the stage in our best educational institutions. The present attitude is well stated in a report issued by the American Council on Education, entitled An Assessment of Quality in Graduate Education. The ACE study evaluates and rates graduate programs in universities throughout the country. About libraries it comments: "The library is the heart of the university; no other single nonhuman factor is as closely related to the quality of graduate education ... institutions that are strong in all areas invariably have major ...
