Evaluation of the Eggleston Library, Hampden-Sydney College. Final Report.
Hampden - Sydney Coll., VA. Eggleston Library.
This evaluative report describes the results of a program that sought to make students and faculty more aware of the library's resources, to demonstrate how to make best use of such resources, and to provide basic training for non-professional members of its staff. It is presented in three parts: (1) the report of the administrator, which describes the program's goals, results, and conclusions; (2) the report of the reference-librarian coordinator, which reviews the reference services initiated during the grant period, describes plans for continuing and developing these services, and evaluates the attainment of the program's objectives; and (3) the report of the director of the summer workshops, which very briefly summarizes the activity pattern on the workshops, provides the syllabus used in the workshops, and lists faculty and library staff members who completed the summer course. Included in the second part are a copy of the library guide; annotated lists of the library's basic reference sources in government and foreign affairs, history, and English and American Literature; a proposal for a program of library instruction, and a questionnaire on library instruction sessions. The summer workshop report includes lists of basic reference works and sample reference questions. (JD)
