Voros, David, Ed.
This self-directed library skills workbook is designed to acquaint students in basic English courses at Lehigh County Community College with the facilities and resources of the library. All freshmen are required to purchase the workbook as part of their texts for the basic English Skills course. The same textual information is contained in 15 different editions of the workbook, with 50 different multiple choice questions in each. Organization is by type of materials, not area of the library. The workbook begins with a self-paced tour of the library and then provides instruction on the library basics: the card catalog, Library of Congress subject headings and classification systems, periodical indexes, dictionaries (general and specialized), biographical sources, encyclopedias (general and specialized), geographical sources, almanacs and statistical sources, newspaper indexes, additional standard reference tools, and the use of audiovisual materials as a research source. The students must sucessfully complete the workbook to fulfill the basic English Skills requirement. (Author/THC)
