First Annual Progress Report on the Course-Related Library Instruction Program.
Ball State Univ., Muncie, IN. Dept. of Library Science.
This annual report describes the first year progress of a National Endowment for the Humanities and Council for Library Resources grant funded project for the integration of the teaching of library use into courses in the humanities. The program has experienced a shift away from early efforts to offer specialized instruction in a variety of courses and course sections in the humanities toward development, over several years, of instruction on two levels. The first involves integration of instruction into an English composition course, proceeding to a second level that will involve instructional components keyed to selected courses in the major and minor sequences of various academic departments in the humanities, emphasizing the bibliography and literature of the particular humanities discipline. Two essential factors will determine future prospects for bioliographic instruction at Ball State University: one is the willingness and ability of the department of library service to produce and use various media methods for instruction; the other is the department's success in organizing its range of instruction and orientation activities, especially the CLRI program and the present general instruction service, into a cohesive and unified program.
