Web Sites as Found Objects: Online Instruction at Five Undergraduate Colleges.

by Bardeen, Angela

Abstract (Summary)
This study examined online library instruction provided by small, undergraduate colleges. Content analysis was performed on library Web sites at five baccalaureate colleges with student bodies ranging in size from 1,000 to 3,000. These Web sites were reviewed in order to determine what kind of patterns appeared in online library instruction at small colleges. Guiding questions related to information literacy standards, undergraduate learning styles, and principles of good Web and instructional design were applied to each library site. The results indicate that while these libraries show strengths in promoting information literacy standards through navigable instruction, there is a need for attention to undergraduate visual and kinesthetic learning styles.
