Instructional Materials for CD-ROM Databases.
Maxymuk, John
This document is a compilation of instructional materials created and used at Temple University's (Pennsylvania) Central Library System to train students and staff in how to best utilize CD-ROM databases. The first section is the script for a workshop for students that is taught by librarians at Temple on effective searching of CD-ROM databases in general. The script is followed by the overheads and handouts used in the sessions. The second section contains system-specific staff training exercises used at Temple to introduce new staff to the software of three different CD-ROM database vendors (SilverPlatter, UMI, and Wilson). The aims of the two sets of materials differ greatly. The workshop directed at students addresses the questions of what a database is and how one searches it; the staff training exercises focus on the commands one needs to know to make a specific database or system work.
