Five-Year Report and Evaluation of the Library-Faculty Partnership Project: 1973-1978.
Robison, Dennis E.; Bolt, Ernest C., Jr.
This collection of materials describes a project at the University of Richmond which addressed the areas of faculty development and bibliographic instruction in order to promote relationships between library services and academic programs, as well as to increase and improve students' use of libraries. Over a period of four years, 15 faculty members selected to serve as "library partners" were given released time from teaching to design or revise existing courses and to develop library-centered teaching approaches. The report includes the proposal for this project, a year-by-year review of project activities, and assessments of project impact on faculty and libraries. Appendices contain faculty participation reports, criteria for selection of faculty, a list of faculty participants, sources checked for collection development, criteria for weeding, a bibliography of faculty publications and papers, a description and evaluation of a self-instructional unit for teaching library skills to freshmen in English classes, a sample faculty interview questionnaire, a summary of the Earlham College workshop on bibliographic instruction, and a proposal for the continuation of the library-faculty partnership.
