The aim of this unit is to encourage students to find the information they requireindependently by exploring different sources of information available in most librariesand by using catalogues and bibliographies to locate the sources relevant to their needs.
Many people associate books with libraries.This task looks at the differentkinds of printed material available that students may need to use as references.Studentsneed to explore and share the information they already know about books in libraries.Some vocabulary such as abstracts and journals may be unfamiliar to all the classmembers.If this is the case,the teacher may need to supply examples or definitions.
This task looks at services offered in libraries in addition to the referencesmentioned above.Mano mentions the following services.1,4,5,7,8,9,10,15,16 and17.Students should be aware of what services might be available in order to know whatkinds to look for in the different libraries they may use in the future.
there is no library available,you may have to omit this exercise.It ishelpful,however,to explore a library,even if it isn't in English,to find out what thedifferent references and sources look like and how they can be used effectively.
It is unlikely that the libraries you are using will have either of the two systemsmentioned here,though they will probably use something similar to one of them.It isimportant students are aware of the differences and how the books are located in each.Students who have difficulties using the system in a library should feel confident aboutasking the librarian for help.
