Amidst the labyrinthine collection of books where readers and researchers can lose themselves for hours, libraries also host a wealth of digital resources; allow visitors to check out movies, music, and video games; and organize talks, story times, and much more. This lively volume helps readers navigate the physical and digital bookshelves of libraries, explaining the various types of libraries and breaking down how to use library catalogs and classification systems. Readers are then guided through a short research project, encouraging them to connect information from multiple sources in line with Common Core requirements.

The Provision and Use of Library and Documentation Services is a collection of papers that deals with library interdependent considerations of use and service. One paper discusses the value, organization, and exploitation of trade literature, citing the importance of maintaining a file of trade catalogues to narrow the gap between industrial activity and academic research. Another paper reports a high library membership (80% - 100%) on a survey of library provision and services in four correctional institutions in London. The author notes that professional advice should also be available to help the prisoner read effectively. One author reviews the library services for undergraduates particularly problems of inadequate services and facilities. Other authors discuss the pattern of borrowing in several libraries which generalizes the borrowing behavior of academic communities, such as the rising levels of foreign language and "off-subject" borrowing. Of interest is one author's analysis of the way scientists use libraries in terms of finding information, reading, and use of facilities. His conclusion: scientists have no clear-cut opinion on the best method of acquiring information. This book is suitable for librarians, administrators of private or public library systems, for students and academicians in the field of library science.

I was always a library guy. When I was a kid, I used to walk to the library with my friend Peggy McGraw. That was like 1969. I guess not many other guys were into libraries. I was athletic and normal. I wasn’t a nerd. I was so interested in life that I loved to read about inventors, fairy tales, electricity and all kinds of stuff. It was a part of my nature. I believe it’s normal to be curious, intellectual and creative. I love libraries and librarians. They’re some of the best people on the planet when you stop and think about it. The entire profession is to help people. Why did I write this book? I believe in education. This book is my tribute to libraries. It’s a library structure-framework book. The thing about most libraries is that they have some free information on their websites like local job resources but you still need a card to use their databases or borrow a book. Nowadays they're always busy because they got computers that people come into use.

This provocative new book will help you design and implement the most effective library user education possible--one that builds on basic library use skills through a progressively sophisticated program that is fully integrated into course curriculum at all levels, from the freshman year to graduation and beyond. By exploring major issues underlying the integration of library use skills and research methodologies into the general education curriculum, contributors raise important questions, offer creative ideas, and provide insight into the many improvements made in library instruction in the past few years. Following an introduction by Patricia Breivik, a recognized national authority on libraries and general education, contributors representing two- and four-year institutions and research universities discuss such issues as the relationship between high school and college programs, research skills instruction in a remote access environment, the use of microcomputers and end user searching programs to promote critical thinking, and the improved relationship between librarians and faculty. In addition to articles on library instruction geared towards question analysis, information generation by field, structure of published knowledge and dissemination of a discipline’s literature, chapters identify cooperative efforts needed among school, public, special, academic libraries and other information agencies, computer center personnel, and online database vendors. Bibliographic instruction librarians who are active participants in planning and administering library user education programs will find this volume to be essential for building and developing stronger, more integrated programs.
