Library-Use Instruction for Engineering Students.
Aluri, Rao
Instruction for students in the use of libraries and their resources has been neglected in engineering education. Librarians can team teach courses on technical writing and introduce students to the major information sources in their fields. They can give presentations, publish handbooks, bibliographies, and pathfinders on library resources, and present audiovisual programs for library orientation. Engineering instructors and administrators should realize that library resources are important, and that librarians are willing to work with the instructor in developing instructional programs to improve students' library skills. Advantages of such instruction to students are: (1) they can collect background information more efficiently; and (2) they have the opportunity without undue dependence on a instructor's guidance. A list of 13 hints on conducting a literature search, modified from University of Nebraska at Omaha courses to be more universal, is attached. (Author/KP)
