Program to Improve and Increase Student and Faculty Involvement in Library Use. Second Annual Progress Report to the Council on Library Resources and the National Endowment for the Humanities for the Year September 1, 1974-August 31, 1975.
Lubans, John, Jr.
The library instruction program conducted at the University of Colorado consisted of classroom contact with students in the history and economics departments, and production of a slide tape. Evaluation instruments were developed for discovering present student and faculty library use and faculty attitudes toward the library, with the idea of comparing student use patterns before and after the library instruction program. The student questionnaire evaluated students' knowledge of systematic literature search techniques. Faculty were questioned on their own needs for information about library materials and search techniques, their surmises about student library knowledge and skills, and any instruction they may have given students about using the resources in their fields. Tables of data and copies of the questionnaire are included. (LS)
