Maximizing the Effectiveness of Online Searching--A Training and Education Model.
Hardy, Nancy F.
Three aspects of training and education for online searching of bibliographic and databases are addressed: (1) the present status--what is being taught, (2) a proposed model--what needs to be taught, and (3) the implementation of the model--who should teach what. The first section shows which organizations (library and information schools, information retrieval services vendors, database producers, and other online user groups) are engaging in which education and training activities: question negotiation, search strategy, evaluation of results, information retrieval system mechanics, database-specific information, and database loading characteristics by retrieval system. Basic competencies, search strategy development, and evaluation of results are the three major components of the model presented in the second section. A sample worksheet is included. Finally, who should have the responsibility for teaching different aspects of online searching is briefly considered in the conclusion. (Author/JD)
