LIP Notes: A Syllabus for the Library Instruction Program, University Library, California State University, Long Beach.
Koyama, Janice, Ed.
Prepared for students who participate in the California State University Long Beach (CSULB) Library Instruction Program (LIP), this document is both a working syllabus for classroom use and an outline of the lecture presentations given by librarian instructors, though it can also be used as a reference guide to review library research methods, major bibliographical and information sources, and the various procedures in constructing a search strategy. Three features facilitate its usefulness: (1) questions, selected from actual ones asked frequently at the reference desks, introduce the chapters; (2) instruction in the selection and content of reference sources is accomplished with annotated, sample pages from bibliographies, indexes, and catalogs; (3) the summary chapter, "Search Strategy," presents a flexible model of library research methodology. The order of the chapters logically proceeds from a description of the library with floor plans, to the card catalog, filing rules, subject headings, classification and location, bibliographies, indexes, reference works, biographical dictionaries, book reviews, and government publications. A short chapter on style manuals is also provided. (Author/JD)
