Library Instruction Workbook in Geography.
Bain, George W.; Bain, Nancy R.
A workbook acquaints university undergraduates with the library, the basic reference tools of geographic research, and some of the specialized literature in geography. The first of five sections contains an activity for examining subject headings. Questions focus on using the "International Encyclopedia of Social Sciences," Library of Congress subject headings, "Books in Print,""Social Sciences Index," and "Geo Abstracts." The activity in section II considers book classification, availability, and information. Students use the online card catalog of the library, the library stacks, and the reference department. In section III, a worksheet acquaints students with keys to periodical literature such as "Ulrich's International Periodicals Directory,""The Encyclopedia of Associations," and "Bibliographic Index." Section IV focuses on government documents and section V on finding sources on specific localities. The activity in section VI challenges students to apply skills they have developed to a topic of their choice. (LP)
