Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rama Vishwanathan, MA, MLIS (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This book is a collection of 27 articles giving an overview of the various aspects of the librarians' role in instructing and educating users to use information resources.
Purpose: The book provides theoretical and practical advice on planning and implementation of user instruction programs in health sciences libraries. It also shows the librarian's role, both in the present and future, as an instructor. Librarians can use this as a tool to refine their skills in educating users in this technologically rich library environment.
Audience: Though the title of the volume identifies the target group to be health sciences librarians, this is a useful book for librarians from all types of libraries. Library and information science graduate students taking bibliographic instruction course and library administrators would also find this most useful.
Features: The collection of articles are arranged into five sections, covering different aspects of user education. The individual chapters in each section are articles selected from Medical Reference Services Quarterly from 1987 through 1994. The five sections cover articles that deal with planning and implementing user education programs, instruction to end-user searchers, research in user education, information management education and computer literacy programs, and the use of new and different multimedia technologies in instruction.
Assessment: The strength of the book lies in its good selection of a wide range of articles, including a number of recently written articles that provide interesting ideas and skills to librarians, students, and administrators alike. These research articles complement each other, with the information being current. They are well grouped into the five broad categories covering various aspects of user education.

Library Journal
This collection of articles reprinted from Medical Reference Services Quarterly addresses the broad subject of user education in medical libraries. Published between 1987 and 1994, these articles focus on the actual application of ideas, resulting in a less theoretical treatment of the topic than the Medical Library Association's Educational Services in Health Services Libraries (Professional Reading, LJ 9/1/95). Several of the same authors from the MLA title, in addition to strong representation from academic libraries, are given the opportunity to outline specific examples of their ideas via case studies of actual user education programs and projects they have put in place at work. Both titles aim to serve a similar audience of library students and practitioners, although the "show and tell" nature of this book may make it more useful to students and new professionals than the more tightly written Educational Services, which may not be practical enough to address students' needs. Thankfully, in both titles, parallel emphasis is placed on the role of the librarian as an educator in an electronic environment, for not enough can be written about preparing information professionals to enhance their roles in this effort.
