Information Literacy: Nebraska Responds. Proceedings from the Spring Meeting of the Nebraska Library Association, College and University Section (Lincoln, Nebraska, May 17, 1991).
Giesecke, Joan, Ed.
The eight papers in this collection were presented at the Nebraska Library Association College and University Section spring 1991 meeting. Key note speaker Bill Kloefkorn presented poems and stories as an "essay" on literacy and today's college students. (This presentation is not included in the proceedings.) In the selected paper for the morning session, "Preservation Literacy: Needs and Solutions in Nebraska," Katherine Walter reviewed the progress that has been made in creating a state-wide plan for preservation in Nebraska. Seven other papers were presented during the afternoon session: (1) "Extending the Academic Library: Outreach to School and Community" (Janet Brumm, Sue Buryanek, Kathleen Tooker); (2) "Information Literacy and Education Students: The Planning Stage at Kearney State College" (Janet Wilke); (3) "Libraries and Sick Building Syndrome: Can Anything Be Done?" (Carole Larson); (4) "Library Services for Off-Campus Students" (Peggy Brooks Smith); (5) "The S.D.I. Imperative: Service in a Technologically Limited Environment" (B. C. Wehrman); (6) "Bibliographic Instruction: A Waste of Time?" (Janet Lu); and (7) "Trends in Education" (Carla Rosenquist-Buhler). Topics addressed by these papers include ways in which colleges in the state are providing services to the various off-campus classes to high school students; changes in education that affect the roles of libraries; programs for including library instruction in the curriculum in a meaningful way; and current awareness services used to help faculty stay current in their own fields.
