JUNIOR COLLEGE LIBRARY ORIENTATION INNOVATIONS.
PAULSON, BRUCE L.
AS THE IMAGE OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE LIBRARY HAS CHANGED FROM THAT OF A BOOK DEPOSITORY TO THAT OF AN ACTIVE LEARNING RESOURCE CENTER, THE NEED FOR STUDENT ORIENTATION TO ITS EFFECTIVE USE HAS INCREASED. PROGRAMS AT EIGHT COLLEGES ILLUSTRATE THE VARIATION IN SUCH PROGRAMS--(1) STEPHENS COLLEGE HAS FOUR INSTRUCTIONAL SESSIONS TO PROVIDE ORIENTATION TO THE LIBRARY, UNDERSTANDING OF LIBRARY ORGANIZATION, FAMILIARITY WITH REFERENCE MATERIALS, AND COMPETENCE IN THE USE OF INDEXES. AN ORIENTATION TOUR, CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION, AND TWO BRIEFING SESSIONS ARE USED. (2) MONTEITH COLLEGE PROMOTES STUDENT SKILLS BY LIBRARY RESEARCH ASSIGNMENTS INTEGRATED WITH INTERDISCIPLINARY GENERAL EDUCATION COURSES. (3) FILM LECTURE PRESENTATIONS BY LIBRARIANS, ACCOMPANIED BY A HANDBOOK, ARE FOLLOWED AT FOOTHILL COLLEGE BY LIBRARY USAGE TESTS IN FRESHMAN ORIENTATION AND COMPOSITION CLASSES. (4) ST. PETERSBURG JUNIOR COLLEGE USES A TELEVISION ORIENTATION PROGRAM. (5) AT CALIFORNIA STATE COLLEGE AT LOS ANGELES, A FRESHMAN REQUIREMENT IS A VIDEOTAPED LECTURE INSTRUCTION PROGRAM. (6) THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE USES A HANDBOOK AND TEST SENT TO STUDENTS BEFORE CLASSES BEGIN. (7) TEACHING MACHINES ARE USED AT SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY. (8) AT MOUNT SAN ANTONIO COLLEGE, STUDENTS ARE SCHEDULED INTO 3-SESSION ORIENTATION CLASSES, CONSISTING OF GREETINGS, TOURS, VISUAL PROJECTIONS, LECTURE-DISARMORS, THREE ASSIGNMENTS, AND A QUIZ. (WO)
