A Successful Credit Course in Library Instruction

A Successful Credit Course in Library Instruction. There is a new issue of MLA Forum up. In it, you will find this article by Beth Macleod. She write about the history of the LIB 197 at Central Michigan University. This is a one credit library course taught at CMU which has been around for 30+ years.

From the site:

Library 197 has obviously evolved over the years. Online catalogs, electronic databases, and Web evaluation have replaced card catalogs, Readers’ Guide, and lists of reference books. But the need for the course has remained a constant and it is an important component of our instruction program.
