Preliminary Paper Toward a Comprehensive Program of Library Orientation/Instruction for the Libraries of the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Poole, Jay Martin; And Others
To create a comprehensive program of library orientation and instruction for the libraries of the State University of New York at Buffalo, a committee was appointed to survey several unit libraries as well as all the academic units (104) on the campus. Their object was to determine what, if any, library orientation and instruction programs were in effect. The results of this survey and a literature search culminated in a basic statement of principles, goals, and definitions. One of the more important results of the study was the definition of levels of needs of users: basic, course related, and discipline related. The resulting series of recommendations forms a plan for an aggressive, comprehensive, and coordinated program of bibliographic library instruction and orientation. (Author)
