Open Access Graduate Research Paper


This study assesses the use of INFORMS from 1974- 1978. The number of requests, the types of users, and the variety of data bases used for searches were all recorded during this time period. Sixteen microfilmed rolls of INFORMS negotiation and ledger forms were used. The following conclusions were reached: 1) the number of requests did increase during the time periods when schools were in session; 2) teachers were the number one users of IWFORMS; 3) curriculum and teaching techniques were the subject categories most requested; and 4) ERIC was the data base searched most often for all requests.
