A Directory of Bibliographic Instruction Programs in New England Academic Libraries.
Stockard, Joan, Comp.
This computer-produced directory lists New England college, university, and institute libraries and their bibliographic instruction programs based on responses to a questionnaire. "Program" is used to describe an instructional unit defined by characteristics such as format, target audience, materials used, subject focus, and frequency or repetition. Arranged alphabetically by name of academic institution, entries are divided into sections which describe the institution of which the library is part, the scope and staff of the library, details of the administration of the library's instructional program, an in depth review of some aspects of each current program, and the availability of information about the programs. Each program description includes a title for easy identification, format, indication of when the program was established, who triggers the implementation of the program, average annual attendance, frequency with which the program is offered, target audience, site where the program occurs, publicity, evaluation, print or audiovisual materials used to implement the program, the subject focus of the program, and comments by the respondent. A detailed classified index is provided. (CWM)
