Library Orientation Exercise Creation - Library & Information Science discipline

Investigation #2: Library Orientation Exercise Please create a MEANINGFUL library orientation exercise for a particular group of library users of your choosing. You might select, for example, college freshmen composition students; history majors; senior citizens; high school students; international students; gays and lesbians; law students; medical students; the disabled; or members of the public with limited English language skills. The exercise should consist of ten questions for your user group to answer and should be designed to help this group of users get up to speed in a large public or academic library. Give your exercise a title that makes clear for whom it is intended. For example, "Library Orientation Exercise for Three-Toed Sloths." Please do not conceive of this assignment as a "scavenger hunt" or "treasure hunt." I avoid the terms "scavenger hunt" and "treasure hunt" because inevitably such titles encourage their designers to send people looking for information that will never be important to them. People forced to do meaningless searches will wind up hating the library and librarians because they will feel their time has been wasted. Along with each question you pose for your users you should write a note to me stating why you think this is a worthy question for these users. For example, is it designed to get the user familiar with the opac generally? with how to do keyword searching? with how to truncate? with how to limit by language, medium, date, location? with how to use LC or other subject headings? with how to physically locate and borrow a book? with searching a particular database (and why THAT database)? with displaying, emailing, or printing citations, abstracts, or full-text? with the difference between Google and the free resources to which it provides access versus fee-based library databases or library catalogs (or both)? with what an index is and why it's important? with what a bibliography is and why it's important? This paper will be graded on the quality of your questions based on your ability to justify their usefulness to the users you have targeted. You might wish to take a look at the guidelines here (aimed at community college faculty) for designing effective library assignments: http://commons.hostos.cuny.edu/library/top-ten-tips-for-designing-effective-library-assignments/ or these http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/instruct/assignments.html See also the attached pdf document below that used to be on the Bowling Green SU library site:Effective Library Assignments--Instruction--BGSU Libraries.pdf (attached) Also see the attached sample assignment by a former student: LibraryOrientationExerciseSample.doc (attached) You should upload your assignment as a Word document.
