Mission statements for college libraries by Larry L Hardesty( Book )

7 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The intent of this CLIP (College Library Information Packet) Note is to provide data and sample documents that can be used as examples by college and small university libraries that are writing or rewriting their mission statements. A survey was mailed in April 1998 by the College Libraries Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries to library directors at 268 colleges and small universities; a total of 161 libraries responded. The introduction analyzes survey results according to institutional information, mission statement review and development, groups involved in mission statement development, importance of mission statements, and libraries without mission statements. A selected bibliography and a copy of the questionnaire with results are presented. Mission statements of 52 institutions are included, arranged into categories of private institutions with under 2,500 students, private institutions with over 2,500 students, public institutions with under 2,500 students, and public institutions with over 2,500 students

Survey of the use of slide/tape presentations for orientation and instruction purposes in academic libraries by Larry L Hardesty( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eighty-eight academic libraries were surveyed to determine what kinds of slide/tape library instruction materials are available for purchase or loan. The conclusions reached were: (1) there are less than a dozen libraries that have produced presentations of sufficient quality and adaptability to be widely used; and (2) the slide/tape format demands time, expertise, and resources that are often underestimated. For each responding library a summary of the purpose, course use, subject, producer, financing, and evaluation of the slide/tape presentations is included. Four tables and the appendixes contain the survey questionnaire and the prices of Kodak slide Projectors and 3m Wollensak tape recorders as of December 1975. Also included is a reprint of a 17 page bibliography on audio-visual techniques and library instruction compiled by the University Library, The University of Michigan. (Nr)
Bibliographic instruction : defining, organizing, and promoting a program by Larry L Hardesty( Book )

5 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This basic discussion of the organization of bibliographic instruction programs in an academic setting includes consideration of factors involved in implementing an innovative program. Several stages in developing and organizing a systematic program are reviewed: creating student awareness of the academic library in general, introduction to use of the major collections of the library through a general search strategy, introduction to more specialized library resources in their major fields of study, and teaching upper level students relationships between the nature of a particular discipline and the nature of the organization of that discipline's literature. Acceptance of such a program hinges upon the program's innovativeness, which is characterized by relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, trialability, and observability. The social structure as well as the individual will most probably accept innovative programs through specific stages labeled awareness, interest, evaluation, trial, and adoption. (Mbr)

Library service enhancement program, DePauw University, 1976-77 : grant proposal and quarterly reports by James Martindale( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this grant, funded by the Council on Library Resources, was to allow a librarian to put aside normal duties for an academic year to explore with faculty, students, and administrators ways of improving library services, and to design methods of increasing library use by college students. A program was developed for orienting and instructing freshman and upper level students in the use of the academic library. For instructional purposes, two 45 minute slide presentations, accompanied by instructional booklets and worksheets, were given to freshman students. They are also expected to learn a basic search strategy to aid in completing course assignments. Upper level students received discipline-related library instruction; a number of bibliographic guides were developed to support this instruction. Appendices include: (1) results of student evaluation of the library orientation/instruction program; (2) student comments on the program; (3) results of the pre/post test questionnaire designed to measure freshman students' attitudes and skills in regard to the library; (4) faculty questionnaire designed to measure the attitudes and expectations of classroom instruction in regard to the academic library; (5) selected bibliographic guides; and (6) final reports made by the project librarian, director of libraries, and vice president of the institution.

Student use of the library at Kearney State College by Larry L Hardesty( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to determine the relationship between use of the library and the classroom program at Kearney State College. After an extensive review of the literature on student library use, the library circulation slips for a seven and a half week period were collected. The declared academic major, academic class, sex, and grade point averages of full-time, undergraduate students using the library during that period were tabulated. It was found that a large percentage of the students made no use of the library, and only a small minority made appreciable use of the library. Students of certain academic disciplines tended to make heavier use of the library than others, but the use of the library had almost no influence on the semester grade point average of students. It was concluded that use of the college library is not a necessary part of the educational experience of most students at Kearney State College. (Author/PF)

Evaluation of bibliographic instruction by Larry L Hardesty( Book )

2 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguing that there is a current tendency among librarians to talk more about the evaluation of bibliographic instruction than to actually do anything about it, this paper examines limitations of and considerations pertaining to evaluation and includes: (1) a brief discussion of the history of bibliographic instruction; (2) discussion of types of evaluation including formative and summative; (3) consideration of things most often evaluated, I.E., attitudes (affective domain) and skills (cognitive domain); (4) additional methods of evaluation including quantitative and qualitative; (5) issues of validity and reliability; and (6) conclusions and recommendations. Copies of overhead transparencies referred to in the text and a list of 50 references are included. (Thc)
