Information Identification and Organization. Student Study Guide. Module II: Organization and Acquisition of Information and Materials.
Bolvin, Boyd M.; West, Sharon
This second module in a three module program examines the types of materials and services that are available in a community information center or library and the tools or sources for obtaining them. The module covers: ways in which books and other materials are arranged and organized; descriptions of library catalogs and the basic information found on catalog cards or bibliographic records, regardless of format (card, microfilm roll, or microfiche sheet); and the meaning of bibliographic records, and how to recognize author, title, and subject cards. The module also teaches the student how to: develop a book purchase plan based upon the needs of a particular community; use journals and established lists to acquire, identify, and organize library materials; select periodicals; establish and become familiar with the uses of a periodical record file; and set up and use a library shelf list or inventory file. Students also gain a working knowledge of the Alaska Library Network (ALN) and its multiple uses for interlibrary loan (ILL), reference, cataloging, and selecting library materials. Each unit has learning activities, self-tests, tests, and assignments. Answers to the self-tests are provided in the document. (THC)
