Year

Abstract
In autumn 93, librarians at Washington State University formed a task force to introduce user policies and instructional methods for users to access and use Lexis-Nexis in the university's humanities/social sciences library. A workstation was installed in the reference area the following February; a 2nd was added in Autumn 94. The task force implemented user policies, monitoring capabilities, and instructional options for users. By using guardian software mounted on the machines, instructional logs, and firsthand observations, they were able to track results of these 2 decisions for 2 semesters. Users use the workstationsheavily after learning to use the database through creatice self education
