Abstract
The DRES library approached the problem of increasing costs of subscriptions and increasing specialization by undertaking a study which looked at the following questions: (a) to identify the sources of information that the scientists found most useful to their work; and (b) to define a group or listing of journals that form an essential "core" to the research program, and to compare the proposed list of journals with the present DRES list of subscriptions. A series of interviews with the scientific staff at DRES was used in the study. The questionnaire designed for the interviews contained specific questions and requests for opinions, as well as providing the chance for each scientist to recommend the journals valuable to him in his work.
