Implementing a Process Approach to Information Skills: A Study Identifying Indicators of Success in Library Media Programs

Implementing a Process Approach to Information Skills: A Study Identifying Indicators of Success in Library Media Programs. This article is by Carol C. Kuhlthau. It was published in School Library Media Quarterly, (SLMQ) Volume 22, Number 1, Fall 1993.

From the site:

This article describes a study that identifies some primary inhibitors and some basic enablers for successful implementation of library media programs. The programs studied are based on a process approach to learning from a variety of sources integrated into one or more subject areas.

The mission of the school library media center as clearly Defined in Information Power is ". . . to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information."(1) Library media specialists across the country have been working diligently to implement programs to accomplish this mission. Some programs thrive and grow, while others—designed with equally good intentions—are confined to narrowly defined roles.
