Bibliographic Instruction in Academic Libraries. A Review of the Literature and Selected Bibliography.
Morris, Jacquelyn M.
This overview of bibliographic instruction (B.I.) in college and university libraries provides a brief review of the literature, proposes an indexing language based on the special terminology of the field for more precise literature searches, and presents a 174-item bibliography of journal articles, books, and ERIC documents. The literature review defines terms and addresses six topics: the concept of B.I., reasons for renewed interest in the field, the role of library schools in B.I., instructional methods, and the literature of B.I. Explanations are offered for selected indexing terms, with emphasis on those that can have multiple meanings in various contexts, and the subject index for the bibliography illustrates the application of the proposed terms. Arranged in alphabetical order by author, the bibliography includes resources in six categories: general works on B.I., planning and implementation of programs, methods of instruction, samples of materials, descriptions of specific programs, and foreign language articles. Seven titles of special interest to community college librarians are included, as well as one citation specifically for vocational technical school librarians. (BBM)
