Pennsylvania Online: A Curriculum Guide for School Library Media Centers.
Pennsylvania State Library, Harrisburg.
This curriculum guide is intended for any librarian in Pennsylvania committed to teaching online searching and looking for guidelines to integrate the skill into the full academic curriculum. The publication will enable school librarians to assist students in developing the skills that will enable them to search and retrieve information from computerized databases, not only to access information necessary for their studies, but also to acquire skills for lifelong learning. (Only bibliographic databases are covered in this document.) It is recommended that this curriculum be integrated with the teaching of library media skills in other curriculum areas. The librarian and various subject area teachers should jointly establish the goals and objectives for the implementation of the online curriculum. The first section of this guide, "Online Curriculum," includes the following subsections: an introduction, offline suggestions, course objectives and student outcomes, planned course scope and sequence, and sample lesson plans. The second section, "Online Management," includes: an introduction, budget and costs, vendors, gateway software, telecommunications, copyright, security, recordkeeping, and cooperation and support. References, an annotated bibliography and numerous appendices, including a sample search and lists of vendors, telecommunications networks, and commonly used databases, are provided. (THC)
