Library Skills. A Self-Paced Program in the Use of Stockton State College Library. Workbook, Handbook, and Program.
This course in library skills is designed to acquaint college students with the facilities and resources of their college library (Stockton State College, New Jersey). The two-part module--handbook and workbook-- is used in conjunction with specific college courses. Students proceed at their own pace, turning completed assignments in to the Library Office to be corrected. When all questions are answered correctly, a "Complete" mark is forwarded by the library to the student's instructor. Organized by types of materials, the handbook and corresponding workbook include the following chapters: (1) Library Tour; (2) Finding and Borrowing Books; (3) Card Catalog--Author and Title Approach; (4) Card Catalog--Subject Approach; (5) Library of Congress Subject Headings; (6) Periodical Indexes; (7) Finding Stockton College Library Periodicals; (8) Newspaper Indexes; (9) More Periodical Sources--The Abstracts; (10) Dictionaries; (11) Encyclopedias; (12) Almanacs; (13) Biographies; (14) Atlases; (15) Book Review Indexes; (16) Government Documents; (17) Audiovisuals; (18) The Library Search--How To; and (19) Preparing a Bibliography. The Stockton workbook uses a numerical code for its answer key to provide flexibility in preparing workbook variations on each assignment. An appendix lists locations and call numbers of reference works cited in the handbook. A brief description of the program which includes the answer keys is attached. (THC)
