Training Library Work Study Students for Academic Credit: A Way To Address the Accountability Factor.
Rothlisberg, Allen P.
Work study students at Northland Pioneer College's Learning Resource Centers in Arizona are required to take a one-unit class entitled Learning Resource Center Survival Skills. Students who successfully complete the course will have mastered 18 skills needed to perform their duties at the resource centers. Assignment of a grade for this course depends in part on satisfactory performance of assigned tasks, and this helps promote accountability. Skills covered in the course range from shelving materials using the Library of Congress system, printing out search strategies using the NEWSBANK computerized data bank, and sending and retrieving messages on the college's voice mail system. Because of the success of the program, it is being extended to work study students located at the college's resource centers in nine other communities in rurally isolated Navajo and Apache Counties in northeastern Arizona.
