In a typical university library only 16 percent of the students use "the varied library materials for independent study" (Risko, Alvarez, & Fairbanks 1991, 221). Half of the students using an academic library are employing it only as a study hall, using only their own textbooks (Lyle, 1963).
|"The library is a major resource and service|
agency for both students and faculty"
(Risko, Alvarez, & Fairbanks 1991, 221).
Only 33 percent of the authors reviewed in the literature on study skills provide any information on how to use the library (Risko, Alvarez, & Fairbanks 1991, 222).
1. The coming information age.. Information access will become critical!
2. One week of decisions today/now = lifetime of decisions in 17th Century.
3. Fastest growing business is computer software... What is it?--- information!
4. Access to information has ALWAYS been critical...
China, 3,000 BC, Mesopotamia --> Civilization = written Language = Info. Access = Libraries
Story of Amit Anu, City of Ur, 2700 BC city library on tablets (cuneiform) w/ catalogs, divisions by subject, etc.
|ALL great civilizations have had libraries and with them systems of information access -- indexes, catalogs, etc.|
5. TODAY, and increasingly, information is power. For YOUR future, you need information. The more information you have, the more successful you will be.
