An Individualized Program for Learning Resource Center Orientation.
Vernon, Christie
A completely individualized, self-contained, taped orientation tour of the Learning Resource Center of the Thomas Nelson Community College was developed by the library director. To generate the materials, the staff and director cooperated in an analysis of the items of information that were basic to the use of the learning resource center and in the development of questions which would test familiarity with this information. A script was written and produced on audio tape. The materials were evaluated by administering pre- and posttests to library patrons; the resulting degree of improvement was determined by statistical analysis. An interview procedure was also used with the college staff and students. It was concluded that the tour was well-received and contributed materially to the general orientation program of the college, to the improvement of the attitude of students to the learning resource center, and the improvement of their library skills. A discussion of the limitations of the study and suggestions for further refinements are included. The script of the audio tape and the test questions are appended. (Author/HB)
