One-Shot Library Instruction and Cambourne's Theory of Learning - PREPUBLICATION VERSION

Librarians who teach “rapid” bibliographic instruction sessions (one-time, less-than-one-hour bibliographic instruction sessions to first-year, undergraduate students) are often torn between two philosophies : a “critical mass” philosophy emphasizing a minimum amount of databases that must be introduced with little actual time for student searching of the databases, and a “skills-oriented” philosophy emphasizing the introduction of one or two databases which the students have adequate time to hone their search skills with one-on-one interaction with the librarian. According to Brian Cambourne’s Theory of Learning, neither philosophy is effective without certain preparations of and expectations from the student. This article was published in PUBLIC SERVICES QUARTERLY (2012), 8:4, 277-296. [Taylor & Francis]
