Abstract:

The objectives of the research are to develop higher levels of task- oriented skills in professional and nonprofessional library personnel and will emphasize both the substance to be learned and the act of learning itself. The several course packages are being developed as modular units so that the instruction may be taken in sequences appropriate to the individuals training needs. Each instructional unit or lesson is designed to occupy a trainee for approximately 30 minutes, and includes diagnostic and post-instructional tests and recommendations for supplementary study. The course materials will exploit several media, including videotape, sound and slides, and conventional paper materials. As of this reporting, five units have been designed and are in the beginning stages of production. They are a first unit in system analysis, three dealing with reference materials, and one in Russian trans-literation.
