Northern Illinois University Libraries Library Instruction: Scope and Mission Statement.
Crimmins, Mary E.; And Others
This library instruction statement is designed to help the Northern Illinois University (NIU) Libraries meet the information needs of the students, faculty, and community. Objectives designed to reflect the general goals of the NIU library instruction program include increasing university and community awareness of the library as an educational, recreational, and cultural facility; assisting users to find and use library materials and facilities; reinforcing or providing supplementary instruction in research methods; bringing to the attention of library users specific materials, new items, and new services available in the library; and developing instructional programs that provide positive learning experiences for all students. The instructional objectives are divided first by user category and second by level of library use. The categories and levels are as follows: (1) students--basic library skills, course-related bibliographic instruction; (2) faculty--library services and resources, library-classroom liaisons; (3) community--library environment, special interests; and (4) library staff--general staff orientation, information services. A chart showing levels and related activities is included. (THC)
