Title
Education for reference/information service : a quantitative and qualitiative analysis of basic reference courses
Source
Reference librarian. 1994, no.43, S.145-172
Year
1994
Abstract
Presents the results of a survey conducted to investigate how library and information science students are being educated for careers in a changing reference/information environment. A review of the literature on education for reference work since the 1970s shows a shift in focus from reference sources to reference work with a greater emphasis on user needs and behaviour. Completed questionnaires from 48 teachers of basic reference courses in ALA-accredited programmes were analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively. The most frequently taught skills related to the reference interview and search strategy, most courses covered types of reference sources as well as specific titles, and most teachers give some attention to reference/information services. The learning objectives and teaching methods exhibited considerable variety, however. Qualitative analysis of data about course content and future trends suggested a growing recognition of the systematic nature of reference work and the importance of evaluation
