Bibliographic Instruction Objectives.
Huston, Mary M.
The objectives presented define the basic information required of a student operating in the Library System of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. These statements of objectives are intended to provide a tangible framework for all public service personnel in the Undergraduate Library, and their various components can be coordinated to achieve three designated goals based on the premises that the average college student is unaware of most available bibliographic sources, that the library is a highly complex information system, and that the library staff should address itself to the coordination of library and classroom instruction. The first goal is to foster the student's comprehension of the total library system, and it involves instruction in library organization, the card catalog, the shelf list, the serial record, and the Library Control System. The second goal entails making the student aware of services offered by the Undergraduate Library, such as reserves, media centers, reference, bibliographic instruction, and circulation. The third goal, that of alerting the student to the wide variety of available informational resources, is concerned with his or her exposure to reference books, monographic literature, periodical literature, government publications, newspapers, reference services, and referrals.
