Abstract

Library instruction has developed from teaching students how to locate materials to teaching information literacy skills. The library literature is full of articles related to learning instruction, styles, and strategies. Even though library instruction is a big part of librarians’ responsibilities, very few library school programs prepare librarians for teaching, nor do many librarians receive adequate teaching training once in the workforce. Some librarians are natural teachers; however, the majority of librarians at the beginning of their careers experience inadequacy and frustration in teaching. To fulfill the need for library instruction education, experienced librarians have written many books on the topic, and this book is a good addition to the library instruction pedagogy resources that are already available.
