A Library Instruction Program for Beginning Undergraduates.
Hallman, Clark N.
Intended to aid college instructors in need of library and bibliographic instruction presentations, this report describes a program which was designed by reference librarians at the University of Nebraska at Omaha to introduce beginning undergraduate students to the use of the university library and its resources. The report presents background information, as well as information on audiovisual presentations, library tours, and the Library Orientation Workbook, which is included in its entirety. The workbook contains sections on the card catalog, Library of Congress subject headings, encyclopedias, periodical indexes, location of magazine call numbers, newspaper indexes, abstracting services, and the monthly catalog of United States government publications, followed by exercises for the student. Chapters on grading the exercises and evaluating the success of the program are included in the report. (FM)
