This book demonstrates that public librarians can promote learning by combining the elements of Information Literacy Instruction (ILI) with traditional practices of public libraries. It not only provides background on ILI and current developments in public library instruction, it also examines educational theories and practices derived from a variety of fields and translates the theories and practices into a well-coordinated plan for libraries to follow. It encourages librarians to rethink practices to incorporate the principles of ILI and will enable public librarians to extend and enrich their instruction on information use.

Reflecting the dramatic changes shaped by rapidly developing technologies over the past six years, this new fourth edition of Reference and Information Services takes the introduction to reference sources and services significantly beyond the content of the first three editions. In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and methods in the provision of reference service in an era when many users have access to the Web. In Part II, Information Sources and Their Use, discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries. A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their experience as teachers of reference and as practitioners in different types of libraries. Discussions of services in Part I integrate digital reference as appropriate to each topic, such as how to conduct a reference interview online using instant messaging. Boxes interspersed in the text are used to present scenarios for discussion, to highlight key concepts, or to present excerpts from important documents. Discussions of sources in Part II place more emphasis on designing effective search strategies using both print and digital resources. The chapter on selection and evaluation of sources addresses the changing nature of reference collections and how to evaluate new types of sources. Each chapter concludes with an updated list of additional readings to guide further study. A new companion website will provide links to Web-accessible readings and resources as well as additional scenarios for discussion and example search strategies to supplement those presented in the text.

Librarians must now work at a different level from that required 20 years ago, but the training available is not always appropriate or accessible to all. The authors of this volume have responded to this significant and continuing change within the profession by offering a much-needed guide to best practice for staff training and development in library and information work. This handbook addresses new aspects of service provision both in the UK and abroad, and provides an up-to-date review of the current developments that are becoming increasingly important to librarians through the influence of the electronic age and the widening of areas of professional involvement. The Handbook of Library Training Practice and Development will be invaluable to those responsible for the development of staff and line managers as well as providing a crucial insight into the information profession for anyone new to this career path or looking to develop their knowledge within it.

The Academic Teaching Librarian’s Handbook is a comprehensive resource for academic library professionals and LIS students looking to pursue a teaching role in their work and to develop this aspect of their professional lives in a holistic way throughout their careers. The book is built around the core ideas of reflective self-development and informed awareness of one’s personal professional landscape. Through engaging with a series of exercises and reflective pauses in each chapter, readers are encouraged to reflect on their professional identity, self-image, self-efficacy and progress as they consider each of the different aspects of the teaching role. This handbook will: - provide a comprehensive resource on teaching, professional development and reflective practice for academic teaching librarians at all stages of their careers - explore the current landscape of teaching librarianship in higher education, and highlight the important developments, issues and trends that are shaping current and future practice - examine the roles and responsibilities of the academic teaching librarian in the digital era - introduce the essential areas of development, skill and knowledge that will empower current and future professionals in the role - inspire prospective and current academic teaching librarians to adopt a broad conception of the role that goes beyond the basic idea of classroom-based teaching, and provide practical tools to engage in personal development and career planning in this area. The Academic Teaching Librarian’s Handbook is an indispensable reference, suitable for early career professionals at the start of their teaching journey, as well as mid- or late-career librarians who may have moved into leadership and managerial roles and who wish to advance their teaching role to the next level.

Evaluating Library Instruction

This easy-to-use guide offers a wealth of materials to assist you in planning and creating evaluation instruments for your library instruction program. It was prepared by a unit of the American Library Association, the Library Instruction Round Table Research Committee, whose members analyzed hundreds of evaluation forms gathered from all types of libraries, selecting the most consistently useful items. User-instruction programs are costly, and their effectiveness must be documented with hard data. But with busy staff, evaluation has often been more preached than practiced. One problem has been finding the expertise to create a valid measuring instrument that will provide effective results in a reasonable amount of time. Under the editorship of its chair, Diana Shonrock, the Research Committee has addressed these problems with a "recipe" book that simplifies the planning and creation of evaluation instruments. Here, in one expertly assembled guide, you will find step-by-step advice on survey planning and well over 500 sample questions for evaluation of class work, instructors, and instructional materials and equipment. No other guide offers this level of "plug-and-play" assistance to get your evaluation program under way or is more up-to-date in its coverage of the electronic aspects of modern library instruction.
