Abstract:

The project is conducting research and development to construct, pilot-test, modify, field-test, and evaluate experimental instructional materials responsive to training requirements for personnel in scientific and technical libraries. The objectives of the instruction include improvement in the knowledge and skill of library personnel at both professional and nonprofessional levels and consideration of the relative efficacy of different media and techniques of imparting such instruction. The initial efforts of the project relate to the training requirements of scientific and technical libraries and involve three instructional sequences. The first sequence deals with the role of technology in libraries. It concentrates on system analysis and is directed toward professional librarians. The other two sequences, which are intended for nonprofessional library personnel, present instructional in reference tools and services and Russian transliteration. The report presents a summary of the work to date, including a review of past progress, a description of the instruction packages developed to date, and an experimental design for field testing of the developed instructional materials. The Appendix contains examples of the developmental materials for serials reference work.
