Designed to support a 2-credit course required of Brigham Young University-Hawaii students prior to graduation, this syllabus provides a consolidated library instruction package for students in English 111W--Library Skills and Research Writing--which is taught jointly by librarians and English faculty. The syllabus is written to be easily understood by students from widely diverse educational and social backgrounds. Each of the six sections includes discussion, examples, exercises, and sample test questions. The first outlines basic search strategies, selection of topics, and includes a pathfinder project. The remaining sections explain library layout and services, card catalog, the reference collection, periodical indexes, and microforms. A glossary of library terms concludes the syllabus. Practical hands-on experience is stressed and the information gathered is used in writing research papers. Special videotapes and independent study guides which supplement the syllabus are not included. (Author/RAA)
