A Study of the Administration of Library Use Instruction Courses by Committee.
Biggins, Jeanne
This study examines the effectiveness of a course committee in the administration of a library use instruction program by analyzing the Committee on Library Instruction at Milne Library. The study describes the development and operation of the course committee, analyzes its position in the college's and library's organizational structures, and evaluates the committee and its role. Information and data were collected through selective reviews of the literature of library use instruction and course committee documentation, interviews with and questionnaire surveys of committee members, and review of relevant library and college administration documents. Criteria for evaluation included the scope of the committee's activities, its current role, its relationship to the library's organizational structure and to the college administration, and the allocation of resources to its work. A limitation of this study is the lack of cost data for this site. It was found that the Committee on Library Instruction has effectively administered library use courses despite limited resources and support. Future needs include staff support and budgetary allocations, along with formal recognition in the organizational structures of the college and library. (CWM)
