Abstract
Reports an investigation into the feasibility of usinf tutorials to train students to use on-line public access catalogues (OPACs). The library developed instructional software which conveys a conceptual model of an on-line catalogue and how it works. Reports the results of an experiment conducted to compare the effectiveness of the computer tutorial and the standard introductory classroom lecture on using the OPAC at the University of Toronto
