Summary

Developed in response to a trend toward using hourly students and library school graduate students at the reference desk, this training manual provides basic training for library staff involved in providing engineering reference services. It integrates traditional and electronic resources into a 10-unit, 6- to 8-week program of instruction. The 10 units provide an introduction to the following areas: an introductory tour of the library; basic reference sources; basic reference sources--indexes and abstracts; advanced reference sources; advanced reference sources--company information; advanced reference resources--handbooks; advanced reference sources--standards; and online database searching. A Research Libraries Information Network (RLIN) exercise is included. Each unit provides a list of either basic or advanced reference sources, and a set of questions that require the use of these sources. It is noted that question sets typically take 2 hours to complete. While most questions are straightforward, a number of "trick" items are included to reflect common mistakes clients often make when seeking information. Answer keys are provided at the end of the manual to assist trainers. (MAB)
