Workbook in Library Skills.
Wright, Nancy Kirkpatrick
This workbook, designed for a library skills course, provides 23 lessons to acquaint Yavapai College (YC) students with basic library reference skills. Each lesson begins with explanatory text, followed by reinforcement exercises. After providing course information, the workbook offers information on using the library (Lesson 1), finding books in the open stacks (Lesson 2), using the author/title catalog (Lesson 3), subject access in the catalog (Lesson 4), and the Library of Congress Classification Scheme (Lesson 5). The workbook continues with discussions of periodical indexes (Lesson 6), book review indexes (Lesson 7), newspaper indexes (Lesson 8), and the vertical file of pamphlets, maps, and local interest clippings (Lesson 9). Access to government documents is explained (Lesson 10), before the workbook covers the use of the reserve collection (Lesson 12), dictionaries (Lesson 13), encyclopedias (Lesson 14), atlases (Lesson 15), and almanacs (Lesson 16). Sources are then described for plot summaries (Lesson 17), biographical information (Lesson 18), and information on dates and holidays (Lesson 19). The workbook goes on to explain the use of audiovisual materials and equipment (Lesson 20). Finally, the workbook deals with literary sources (Lesson 21), other local libraries (Lesson 22), and bibliographies (Lesson 23). A list of the reference tools discussed in the workbook is appended.
