Technology and the ERIC system new opportunities and new impacts by Clifford A Lynch( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the inter-relationship between recent developments in information technology and the planning for the evaluation of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) system. It argues that in the light of radical changes currently taking place in the networked information environment and user expectations, bold strategic planning is more important than formal retrospective evaluation. It identifies a number of key areas requiring careful consideration, including funding not only for centralized research and development but for innovation in the clearinghouses that are part of the ERIC system, and for explicit technology transfer mechanisms that migrate individual clearinghouse-based advances into infrastructure that supports the entire system. Further, it considers how environmental technology changes are reshaping the ERIC mission and context, with emphasis on a transition from database building to content access services and full text provision via the World Wide Web. It proposes that ERIC restructure its relationship to the literature of education, both formal and informal, and calls for the ERIC system to undertake a leadership role in coordinating federal government (and other) digital library initiatives as they relate to education as part of its role as a major component of the National Library of Education.

Directory of electronic information resources : a feasibility study by Mary Engle( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides an overview of a University of California (UC) study of the issues involved in creating an online directory of electronic information resources available to the university community. For the purposes of the study, electronic information resources include bibliographic and other databases available at or through UC libraries and campus computer centers, and databases and data files maintained in departments. Such a directory would bring together information about computer files that has not been available from one source. It was found that the project would be feasible if the directory could be implemented in three phases: (1) design of the record structure, user interface, and means of access; (2) implementation and evaluation of a prototype; and (3) refining the user interface, indexing additional fields, and adding newly created records. Six development issues (some of them complex) that would need to be resolved before implementation were identified: the forms of electronic information to be included; the scope of the database, including external databases; availability of satisfactory descriptive information about items to be included; and a machine readable catalog record for each item. It is noted that, in addition to existing UC library records and other on-campus sources of electronic resources, there are nine bibliographic utilities and commercial vendors which produce "databases of databases" that could be included in the UC directory; other resources are available to provide descriptive detail for items in the directory. It was concluded that the directory should exist as a separate database searchable by the MELVYL user interface. Further discussion about Machine Readable Computer Files (MRCF) and a list of the MARC Bibliographic Format for MRCF are appended. (KRN)
