The Special Library on Campus: A Model for Library Orientations Aimed at Academic Administration, Faculty, and Support Staff
Hurst, Leslie
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v29 n4 p231-236 Jul 2003
A broadened library and media center orientation program was developed to include those parts of the academic community often neglected by traditional programs of library instruction. Focusing on the perceived need and political advantages of including administrators and support staff as well as "invisible" faculty in library instruction, library staff examined the information seeking behaviors, the prior research on, and the demographics of this group. The resulting model was successfully implemented and evaluated. Future directions and research needs are discussed.
