AN EXPERIMENT IN COORDINATION BETWEEN TEACHING AND LIBRARY STAFF FOR CHANGING STUDENT USE OF UNIVERSITY LIBRARY RESOURCES.
KNAPP, PATRICIA B.; AND OTHERS
THE EFFECTIVENESS OF A NEW SOCIAL STRUCTURE DESIGNED TO COORDINATE WORK OF FACULTY, STUDENTS, AND LIBRARIANS WAS EVALUATED TO ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO MAKE GREATER USE OF AVAILABLE LIBRARY RESOURCES AND TO RELATE SCHOOL LIBRARIES MORE CLOSELY TO THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM OF THEIR RESPECTIVE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. A 2-YEAR PILOT PROJECT WAS CONDUCTED, WHEREIN LIBRARIANS ON THE PROJECT STAFF PARTICIPATED WITH THE TEACHING FACULTY OF MONTEITH COLLEGE, A BRANCH OF WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY, IN COURSE-PLANNING ENDEAVORS WHICH WOULD INVOLVE EXTENSIVE AND MEANINGFUL STUDENT USE OF THE COLLEGE LIBRARY. LIBRARY ASSIGNMENTS WERE PLANNED AND IMPLEMENTED IN THE NATURAL SCIENCE, SOCIAL SCIENCE, AND HUMANITIES CURRICULUM AREAS. EVALUATIVE DATA WERE OBTAINED THROUGH GROUP OBSERVATION TECHNIQUES AND INTERVIEWS USED TO DESCRIBE STUDENT LIBRARY EXPERIENCES, THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE LIBRARY STAFF AND COLLEGE FACULTY, AND THE FUNDAMENTAL CONTRIBUTIONS AND GENERAL ACCEPTANCE OF THE PROJECT ITSELF. IN ADDITION TO THE ASSIGNMENTS PROGRAM, A NUMBER OF BIBLIOGRAPHIC SERVICES WERE PROVIDED FOR FACULTY USE. ON THE WHOLE THE PROJECT APPEARED TO BE VERY SUCCESSFUL FROM THE STANDPOINTS OF STUDENT AND FACULTY ENTHUSIASM, CURRICULUM ENRICHMENT, AND INCREASES IN OVERALL LIBRARY USEFULNESS FOR PARTICIPATING STUDENTS. RECORDS OF THIS PILOT PROJECT WERE TO SERVE AS THE BASIS FOR AN ACCURATE AND DETAILED PLAN FOR A FOLLOWUP PROGRAM. (JH)
