Final Report of the Course-Related Library Instruction Program. 1978-1981.
Ball State Univ., Muncie, IN. Dept. of Library Science.
Intended to integrate instruction in library use into courses in the humanities and to stimulate the creation of innovative library orientation and instruction approaches for use in other instructional activities at Ball State University, this project focused on the long-range pursuit of instruction structured on two levels: basic instruction to be presented to undergraduate students through the English 104 course, and more advanced instruction for fewer students through selected upper division courses. This report includes the background, organization, planning, current status, evaluation methods, major accomplishments, weaknesses, and future of the library instruction program. The appendices, which comprise the main body of the report, include: (1) a narrative summary of the grant proposal; (2) a list of the Course-Related Library Instruction (CRLI) Task Force members for 1981; (3) a quantitative summary of library instruction in 1978-81; (4) instructional objectives and materials for library instruction in English 104; (5) student evaluation questionnaire summaries; (6) a CRLI evaluation report; (7) grant-funded travel; and (8) English 104 course instructor form letters. Instructional materials provided include guides for writing research papers and for using reference materials, worksheets for use with reference materials, and a self-guided tour of Bracken Library.
