Library Exercises. Revised.
Madland, Denise; Ryun, Rita
Designed for use by freshmen in English classes at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, this workbook contains a series of exercises designed to teach students how to approach research in the library. Five exercises comprise the text, and the lessons are organized to reflect useful approaches to library search strategy. The main research tools covered by the lessons are the public catalog, encyclopedias, and periodical indexes. The first exercise is a self-guided audiotape tour of the library, the second an introduction to the library catalog, the third an overview of the Library of Congress Subject Headings and subject searching in the public catalog, the fourth a set of tips for beginning library research projects, and the fifth a guide to sources for current events information. Each lesson includes a review test. Appended to the text are the pretest/posttest that is routinely administered with the exercises, the script of the audiotape library tour, and a set of floor layout diagrams from the library at the University of Wisconsin-Stout.
