Overview

This practical resource gives academic librarians and school media specialists a complete instructional program for introducing students to the process of library research. The program has been tested and proven as an exceptionally effective method for guiding students in independent learning using library resources. The second edition of this highly regarded text incorporates use of newer library technologies into innovative process strategies, instructional plans, and coaching techniques.

Seven basic steps of the research process are identified and described. Ready-to-use activities with worksheets are provided to help students achieve the specific task to be accomplished at each stage.

In many ways the book is more timely than when the first edition was published in 1985. The library research process approach to learning integrates subject area content with essential information processing skills, preparing students to address real problems in real-world contexts in the information age. Cloth edition previously published in 1994. Paperback edition available April 2002.

Editorial Reviews

RQ
Unlike other library-skills curriculum books...this book concentrates on the critical thinking, problem solving, and constructive processes of learning that students go through. The worksheets develop the cognitive and metacognitive strategies students need to complete the library research process successfully....highly recommended..
Library Journal
Kuhlthau translates the results of her studies on the library research process into a manual for library media specialists and teachers to be used with secondary students. It contains overviews of the various steps in the process from initiating a research assignment to preparing to present the research results and a variety of accompanying activities with worksheets. An important feature is the stress Kuhlthau places on the importance of acknowledging student feelings as they proceed through the research stages. This book will be most useful when both a library media specialist and teacher take it to heart-a librarian acting alone will be hard-pressed to have the continued access to students necessary to follow through on the activities. While lower-level undergraduate research mirrors that done by high school students, college and university librarians without the luxury of a credit-bearing course would be unable to choose more than one or two activities outlined here, sacrificing the coherency of the process. For those not requiring a practical manual, Kuhlthau's recent Seeking Meaning: A Process Approach to Library and Information Services Ablex, 1993 is a more scholarly treatment that provides all public service librarians with a better understanding of student frustration with the research process and suggests possible counseling strategies. School and academic libraries owning the first edition 1985 need not purchase the second, as the few revisions are minor.-Trudi E. Jacobson, SUNY at Albany Libs.
