Directory of Library Instruction Programs in California Academic Libraries.
Coleman, Kathleen, Comp.; Grassian, Esther, Comp.
Compiled from the result of a survey conducted in March 1980, this directory identifies 136 college libraries and provides information on the library instructional program each offers, including instructional modes, whether it is a credit course, teaching and lecture materials used, and a contact person. For credit courses, the entry identifies the department granting the credit, whether or not the course is required, who teaches the course, the number of years the course has been offered, and the number of students completing it. Table One indicates the number of survey returns by library type, i.e., community college, California State University and College, University of California, and private or religious institution. Tables Two to Nine provide a statistical analysis of the various programs for each library type and for all the libraries combined; an explanation accompanies each table. A glossary is provided, as well as five indexes listing libraries offering the following types of programs: library lectures, conducted tours, exercises designed for specific courses, formal and self-paced courses for credit, noncredit instructional programs, and audiovisual media used in library instruction. Appendices include the survey questionnaires and a list of commercially published texts used in library instruction courses. (RBF)
