Designing Motivation into Library and Information Skills Instruction. This is by Ruth V. Small, Associate Professor, School of Information Studies, Syracuse University. It appeared in School Library Media Quarterly Online, Volume 1, 1998.

From the site:

Effective library and information skills instructional programs not only help students acquire the skills they will need to solve their information problems, but also stimulate intellectual curiosity and encourage continued information seeking and exploration. This article describes some well-known theories and concepts of motivation and how they relate to library and information skills instruction. Illustrations of the integration and application of motivation models to library and information skills instruction and some relevant areas for future research on motivation in this context are suggested.
