Chicano Library Program, Based on the "Research Skills in the Library Context" Program Developed for Chicano High Potential Students in the Department of Special Educational Programs.
Dudley, Miriam Sue
The Chicano Library Program is a self-directed course of instruction in the use of the undergraduate library. This library skills course requires a minimum of verbal instruction, and permits the student to proceed at his own pace in as close to a real library situation as possible. During the first seven weeks of the quarter, the students were required to complete sixteen tasks which were designed to teach the Chicano High Potential students how to utilize the library to maximum advantage. In the second quarter, the students were required to compile a bibliography in a history class, thus making immediate use of their newly acquired skills. A similar course of study is being prepared for 185 students from the Black, Oriental, and Chicano communities who have been admitted for the 1970/71 fall quarter. (MF)
