Wright, Nancy Kirkpatrick
This learning module provides 11 lessons to acquaint English Composition I students at Yavapai College (YC) with the facilities and resources of the YC Library. After introductory material describing course requirements, providing instructions, and locating the campuses' libraries, Lesson I explains how to check out a book, put a book on hold, and return a book; discusses fines and lost materials; and illustrates the physical layout of the library. Lesson II explains how to locate a book in the open stacks. Lessons III and IV acquaint the students with the author, title, and subject approaches to monographs provided by the microfilm and card catalogs. Lesson V explains the Library of Congress classification system and includes a selected outline of its classes. Lessons VI, VII, and VIII introduce students to periodical indexes (e.g., the Reader's Guide), to book review sources, and to newspaper indexes (e.g., indexes to the New York Times and Christian Science Monitor). Lesson IX explains the use of YC Library's vertical file, which contains recent pamphlets, maps, and clippings. Lesson X describes the classification system for federal government documents, explains the use of the Monthly Catalog of the United States Government, and tells how to gain access to the YC collection of Arizona state documents. The final lesson discusses interlibrary loan procedures. Each lesson provides explanatory text and exercises. (KL)
