Presentation Description

Library instructional programs available to graduate students in academic institutions in North America are reviewed through three chronological perspectives. This presentation will discuss these three perspectives. The first includes programs from the late 1950's to 1988 that offered traditional bibliographic instruction of print resources as well as CD-ROMs and online databases prior to the widespread availability of the Internet. The second perspective considers information literacy instructional efforts from 1989 to 1999 that paralleled the rise of the Internet. Finally, current initiatives, beginning in 2000, that aim to produce lifelong learners among graduate students through innovative instructional techniques
