A Study of Ten SUNY Campuses Offering an Undergraduate Credit Course in Library Instruction.
This study is a comparative analysis of undergraduate credit courses in library instruction, taught by university librarians and offered by ten State University of New York (SUNY) institutions--Albany, Brockport, Buffalo, Environmental Science and Forestry, New Paltz, Oneonta, Oswego, Plattsburgh, Stony Brook, and Upstate Medical. Topics include a brief outline of each institution; summaries of each of the credit courses, and the various teaching techniques being utilized; a prototype of a model course; and analysis of responses to interview questions by instruction, non-teaching public service, and technical services librarians; library directors; academic teaching faculty; and vice presidents. Major conclusions indicate that these courses are an integral part of the library and university program with positive support from administrators and faculty, and that the personality of the instruction librarian is an important factor both in the classroom and in gaining the support of other librarians. Data are presented in tables, and appendices include a bibliography and the questionnaires and interview questions used. (MBR)
