Reach Out and Teach: Library Instruction in Mississippi Libraries. Script for Slide Presentation.
Ellsbury, Susan H.; Rafferty, Randy
This script was prepared as part of a program presented by the Library Instruction Roundtable (LIRT) to share ways libraries in Mississippi help patrons use library resources. The program evolved from a 1981 needs assessment survey conducted by the Mississippi Library Association (MLA) Education Committee. At that time requests for information and guidance in the area of library instruction surfaced as a top priority concern. The MLA Executive Board asked LIRT to assume responsibility for creating a program on library instruction for the 1984 regional meetings. Based on slides and sample materials from school, public, and academic libraries throughout Mississippi, the program included an introduction, a slide talk (the script is presented here), and a follow-up discussion period. In addition to the script, this document includes the introduction, a bibliography of materials presented which was distributed to participants, and a copy of the slide program evaluation form.
