Title:Research reports in university and research libraries
Author(s):Kee, Walter A.
Subject(s):Research reports
Acquisitions (Libraries)
Abstract:An attempt to present a thorough discussion of the selection and acquisition of research reports reminds me of a slogan printed on my teen-age daughter's jacket: "Do you have a minute? Tell me all you know. " I am reminded of this slogan for two reasons: (1) the subject is a complex, many-faceted, rapidly changing one and a topic about which nobody, I suppose, has all the facts, and (2) I certainly lay no claim to being an expert, even though I am more than 100 miles from home. Within the limits of my knowledge, I will present a brief outline of the recent growth of research, some effects of this growth upon the body of report literature, some problems of the government which inhibit reporting on research, efforts of the government to improve the flow of information, and a generalized discussion of the selection and acquisition of reports. I should state at this point that in my paper I will discuss primarily scientific and technical reports resulting from government- sponsored research and development. I have limited myself to this topic because it is one about which I have a modicum of knowledge.
