Example text

The library–college concept in America dates as far back as the 1930s, when Louis Shores hypothesized that undergraduates would benefit if the teaching–learning experience was moved from the classroom to the library, and problem-solving techniques within a liberal arts curriculum were emphasized (Shores, 1935). Problem solving was the key, and the library–college movement was designed to support both philosophical and practical means for using learning techniques (Terwikkiger, 1975) to solve individuals’ potential problems by making the fullest and most effective use of library resources.

Instruction had been accepted as an integral part of reference work, and the communication skills necessary to perform it effectively were also added to the list of job qualifications for librarians (Lynch and Smith, 2001). In the realm of academic libraries, user-centered approaches, outreach, and learning outcomes assessments, as well as other education and instructional technology skills, concepts, and techniques, became popular. The increase in technology had also resulted in informal “networks,” which made use of email, listservs, news groups, chat, instant messaging, class discussions boards, and other Internet-based tools to further information development in academic libraries.
