Report on the Development of Six Point-Of-Use Audio-Visual Library Instructional Programs.
Chung, Myoung; And Others
Six point-of-use audiovisual programs were developed by librarians as part of a library instruction program in Alexander Library at Rutgers University to illustrate the basic skills needed in using the library's print collections in the social sciences and humanities. Topics for the 16mm filmstrip cartridges were (1) Tour of Alexander Library; (2) Using the Periodical Indexes; (3) Using Psychological Abstracts; (4) How to Use the Card Catalog; (5) Government Publications in Alexander Library; and (6) Using Social Sciences Citation Index. The development process is described, including the production of software--selection of topics, scripts, photography, taping, and laboratory conversion of 35mm slides/tapes to filmstrip cartridges; selection and modification of equipment; and user evaluation of the programs. Users over the summer of 1980 indicated that, while they were pleased with the programs, an unexpectedly high number of them would prefer printed instructions, and they would be interested in programs on non-book materials, including microforms. User evaluation data are reported, and a copy of the questionnaire is appended. (MER)
