Report of the Committee To Develop the Library and Information Technology Session for the Freshman Experience.
Weinberg, Linda; Barbakoff, Sondra; Bellard, Eloise; Roberson, Gloria
This report presents the following five instructional objectives tailored to meet the goal of preparing Adelphi University (New York) freshman to become independent learners and information literate: (1) students will be introduced to the services and resources of the university libraries; (2) students will understand the role of the librarian as an information specialist; (3) students will learn to use ALICAT as an example of a library catalog whose features are transferable to other databases; (4) students will be able to distinguish between a periodical index and the World Wide Web for credible, reliable sources for their research; and (5) students will understand the basics of searching periodical indexes and abstracts using electronic resources. Each objective is followed by an explanatory concept. The instructional module is in two sessions, the first of which provides for an introduction to the library proper, the role of the librarian, and a demonstration of the online public access catalog. The second session introduces indexes and abstracts and demonstrates the use of electronic resources. Suggested activities are appended to each session, and an assessment is attached, as well as a list of suggested books and Web sites used in the preparation of this report. (Contains assessment questions and a list of some Web site literacy resources consulted by report committee members.) (MES)
