New Techniques in the Teaching of Online Searching. An Institute for Library Educators (Seattle, Washington, March 20-24, 1978). Exhibits and Summaries of Presentations.
Mignon, Edmond, Ed.
Using data bases of the DIALOG system new teaching techniques and materials are presented to an audience of library educators. Included are search demonstrations, teaching approaches, sample exercises and instructional prolects, multidatabase searching methods, utilization of search aids and offline resources, the conduct of presearch interviews, information search tactics, and educational program planning. The question, "What level of training do we/should we provide?" served as a major topic of discussion. Distributed to participants at the final session were two position papers: "Proposed Standards for Education in Online Searching in the Professional Library Curriculum," and "On the Relationship between Library Schools, Search Service Vendors, and Database Producers."
