RESOURCE FILE: PRACTICAL PUBLICATIONS FOR ENERGY MANAGEMENT. A REFERENCE GUIDE TO HANDBOOKS, CURRICULA, AND AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS

This file is an in-depth bibliography of action-oriented energy-conservation publications. It is a reference tool, designed for anyone who is asked to recommend "how-to" conservation guides to the public, or who wishes to select one for himself. Managers, facility engineers, building owners and operators, staff-development coordinators, consumer-affairs professionals, architects, educators, extension agents, librarians, and technical information specialists are among those who will find this an extremely useful guide to the literature of energy conservation. The Resource File is an expanded version of Practical Materials for Teaching Energy Management: A Resource File, Edition I, first published by the Department of Energy in the fall of 1977. The entries are short reviews, developed in sufficient detail to permit the user to choose the manuals, study guides, films, and pamphlets best suited to his specific needs. Each listing describes a publication's intended audience and provides a chapter-by-chapter summary of its contents. Entries close with a brief reviewer comment, including accession information. Section I describes primary references, those which can be used alone as practical guides to energy conservation. Included here are operations and maintenance manuals, life-cycle costing handbooks, home insulation manuals, films on fuel-saving driving techniques, and courses devoted exclusively to home weatherization. Section II reviews supplementary material which can be used to add technical and theoretical depth to planning and executing a conservation project, or to preparing educational courses and materials.
