       The appendices to this dissertation comprise two-hundred and ninety-seven pages, from page 251 to page 547. Appendix A contains tables showing the survey items I used to define the indexes described in Ch. VI and the point values I assigned to specific responses on those items. Appendix B is the text of the 14-page survey instrument used in the study, and a quantitative summary of the responses to each item. Appendix C is a transcription (256 pages) of all the short answer, quotive, or qualitative material returned by respondents. My analysis was selective, but I deposited all the data I received into these appendices. They make fascinating reading and may serve as a rich resource for future researchers. I have chosen not to post them here. Anyone wishing to purchase the complete dissertation may do so from ProQuest Information and Learning by calling 1-800-521-0600 ext.7044.
