Back to the books : bibliographic instruction and the theory of information sources : papers presented at the 101st Annual Conference of the American Library Association, ACRL-Bibliographic Instruction Section by American Library Association( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of four papers on the applicability of bibliographic theory to bibliographic instruction is introduced by Ross Atkinson, who sees a shift away from political and pedagogical concerns in bibliographic instruction. In "Pragmatic Bibliography," Patrick Wilson contrasts wholesale or comprehensive bibliography (the compilation of national and trade bibliographies, library catalogs, and abstracting and indexing journals) with pragmatic bibliography (the activity of one person engaged in a specific limited inquiry). Frances L. Hopkins, in "Bibliographic Instruction as a Liberal Art: An Application of Patrick Wilson's Theory of Pragmatic Bibliography," presents a rationale for teaching bibliographic instruction as a liberal art and provides an outline of a proposed program of instruction in bibliographic inquiry. In his paper entitled "On the Nature of Literatures: A Synergetic Attempt," Conrad H. Rawski describes scientific and research literatures as a complex system of interconnected parts. A 123-item bibliography is included. In "Shaping a Bibliographic Instruction Program for Undergraduate Science Students: Applications of a Model of the Structure of the Scientific Literature," Thomas Kirk applies Rawski's theory to the design of an ideal program and presents an outline of such a program. A summary of the four papers by Ross Atkinson and background information on the speakers conclude the document. (ESR)

This report describes the work of the Task Force on Library and Information Services to Cultural Minorities, which was appointed by the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (NCLIS) to explore the status of services, resources, and programs for American Indians, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Afro-Americans, and to make recommendations for improvement. Sections cover: (1) minority library and information needs; (2) the representation of minorities among library personnel, with a discussion of salaries, library schools and library education, continuing library education, staff development programs, and specialized library skills; (3) library services and programs for minorities including adult education programs and information and referral services; (4) the material and resource needs of America's minorities, touching on availability of resources, networking, barriers to access, collection development, selection policies, publishing, and other areas of concern; and (5) financing of library programs for minorities, covering the funding status of these programs, financial planning, and funding requirements. Forty-two recommendations are presented. Also provided are an executive summary and a foreword noting eight recommendations which NCLIS has declined to support. Appendices describe the methodology and findings of a needs assessment study of library/information service for Asian Americans (with a sample questionnaire provided); report on the needs of other minorities; and list Task Force participants.
