STUDENT MANUAL

THE LIBRARY EXPERIENCE: SHARING THE RESPONSIBILITY makes the student a more efficient information problem solver by teaching a variety of information and library skills as they relate to both their work in the classroom as well as in the library. Early in the book the student is presented with a problem--one that requires information for its solution. With every new lesson the student will learn a strategy for solving the problem. By the end of the book the student will have practiced several different strategies, all of them steps in the information and library skills process.

The Library Experience challenges the students by the information problems they must solve, and most importantly, they will learn the information and library skills that will make them successful students and lifelong learners.
