The Dade County, Florida public school system prepared this description of a course which is designed to provide students the opportunity to acquire competencies in the utilization of various resources of the library, including the card catalog, periodical indexes, reference materials and audiovisual resources. The course exposes the student to the location skills which are necessary to aid him in becoming a competent user of the media center and its varied resources. Emphasis is on training students to find the information they need. The content of the course is presented in a workshop-type atmosphere in which the student practices library skills in his own program of study. The range of suggested subject matter relates to the material most frequently included in language arts textbooks on library skills. The degree of specificity lends itself to being taught by a classroom teacher with the school librarian or media specialist serving as a resource person. A list of applicable resources for various grade levels is included. (Author/SJ)
