The Library and the College: Some Programs of Library Instruction.
Werking, Richard Hume
Harvie Branscomb was one of the pioneers in elucidating the interrelationship between the academic library and an institution's instructional program. His emphasis was on teaching with books, making them more accessible, and integrating them into the instructional program. Louis Shores expanded on this theme with his idea of a Library-College. This system would provide individualized instruction for students who would be tutored by someone with special subject training and who also could provide bibliographic guidance. Patricia Knapp, in her work on the Montieth Project, developed theoretical bases for library use and cooperative links with faculty which led to improved student library use and skills. More recently Evan Farber developed a program to integrate library instruction into courses at Earlham College. Using a case study approach and bibliographies of appropriate references, librarians provided lecture-demonstrations to classes in a wide range of subjects. While faculty at many academic institutions regard the library as a separate entity, at Earlham College the library and librarians are integral parts of the college community. (LS)
