Introducing the College-Bound Student to the Academic Library: A Case Study.
Jean, Lorraine A.
The academic library orientation workshops described are conducted by the University of Vermont to acquaint college bound high school seniors with the resources available in an academic library. Sessions consist of a location exercise in which students use the card catalog to locate specific materials, a guided tour of the library, and a written exercise using periodical indexes, the computer listing of periodicals, and the card catalog. Participating students and their teachers complte written evaluations which the library reference staff then uses to monitor the program's effectiveness. This study examines the evaluations from six sessions and offers suggestions for improvement. A sample reference exercise, sample titles for the location exercise and a reference exercise worksheet, and evaluation forms are appended. (Author/RAA)
