Evaluation of Self-Paced Library Instruction at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries.
Stebelman, Scott
The findings of this study indicate that self-paced library instruction is a viable alternative to more costly tutorial or computer assisted instruction for replacement of existing library orientation tours. The self-paced instruction packet presents three basic library skills: location of books using author, title, or subject catalogs; location of periodical articles starting from an index; and location of microfilms and the use of a microfilm reader. A library skills test and a demographic and attitudinal questionnaire provide instructional evaluation. The study includes a discussion of the methodology and an analysis of the results. (RAA)
