Student Learning and the College Library: An Annotated Bibliography.
Shklanka, Olga
The purpose of this annotated bibliography is twofold: (1) to identify which educational and library science literature deals with the learning needs of college students in libraries, and (2) to identify the extent to which library services have been integrated into the educational objectives and learning practices of Canadian community colleges. The bibliography, which lists sources published primarily since 1980, is derived from online searches of the ERIC, "Library Literature," CIJE and "Psychlit" databases, and includes selected references in postsecondary education. The bibliography builds on the historical development of college libraries as being the center of the instructional process. It identifies literature about the nature of college learners; teaching and teaching styles; the psychological needs of learners within the library context; library literacy and information seeking skills as learning processes; and the relationship of critical thinking to bibliographic instruction. Key references discussing faculty-library relationships are highlighted. Specifically excluded from the bibliography are methodological articles, manuals, handbooks, works about the academic status of librarians, library science textbooks, collections of studies not linked to academic achievement or learning goals, and articles dealing with professional schools such as law, medicine, or business.
