Title:From bibliographic instruction to instructional management: A process-oriented approach for reengineering library instruction programs
Author(s):Estrin, Jonathan W.
Subject(s):Academic libraries
Library orientation
Abstract:Library instruction is an important function of academic library services. However, there is an increasing need to discover new strategies for reaching out to the academic community to promote, develop, and implement quality instructional programs. To do so, instruction must be seen as an important organizational need and it must be provided the necessary resources to pursue proactive outreach to academic departments. Curricular integration is currently seen as the most efficient and effective method of enhancing the performance of library instruction, but library organizations must also integrate their outreach and instructional activities into internal operating processes in order to achieve critical success. This article introduces the concept of instructional management as an organizational framework for carrying out the library's educational mission. By introducing management concepts to traditional library instruction practices, librarians can realign staff competencies throughout the organization to improve the overall quality of their teaching program and to better diagnose and service their user community. Goals, objectives, and implementation guidelines for instructional management are discussed.
