Instructing the Community College Library User: The Michigan Experience.
Rader, Hannelore B.
In addition to supporting instructional services, a major function of the community college library or learning resources center (LRC) is satisfying the widely differing information and communication needs of students enrolled in four basic types of programs: (1) preparatory courses for transfer to four-year institutions; (2) vocational-technical programs; (3) general education programs ending with an associate degree; and (4) continuing education programs. However, the LRC is often under-utilized. Since one of the major reasons for this is the students' lack of library skills, library instruction programs should be designed to meet real information needs of students in specific courses. Librarians are advised to plan programs based on need-related objectives, develop closer faculty cooperation, and investigate the possibilities of obtaining program grants. The appendix provides a directory to 32 community college libraries in Michigan and describes their 1977 library instruction activities, ranging from none to comprehensive programs. (BBM)
