Abstract

Mechanisms for access are given regarding key information resources on the subject of program evaluation. Included are listings of important books, journals and newsletters; brief descriptions of the major professional societies in the program evaluation field (including membership information); a listing of resources for evaluation training materials; and a brief discussion of targeted research on evaluation that is contributing to the development of resource materials. The resources indentified are mainly intended for use by individuals conducting evaluation research studies, and for those engaging in training and research on program evaluation. A concluding section highlights some potentially useful information retrieval devices and strategies, and examines briefly future developments in program evaluation that may be related to resource materials now available or being created.
