Training Materials for Library Instruction
Need help developing classes on basic computer, Internet and other library skills? There is help available. Don't feel you have to reinvent the wheel. Many libraries and library organizations have published lesson plans and other helpful materials that you can use in your own instruction programs. We've started a list of recommended websites for you to explore.
Check back here periodically for new additions.
- NJLA Library Internet Guides
These materials were developed by a NJLA design team through a grant from AT&T, which is supporting Internet training in public libraries. The six courses available are: Computer Basics; Internet Basics; Search Engines and Directories for Beginners; Using Search Engines; Searching for a Job on the Internet and Genealogy Resources on the Internet.
- CJRLC's "Help for Your Patrons" and CJRLC's "Lesson Plan Links"
The Central Jersey Regional Library Cooperative in Freehold, NJ, has developed a marvelous series of web pages focusing on helping patrons with computer and web basics. Billed as "These links are the next best thing to a librarian at your elbow!" the help pages link you to web sites that give a basic course in information literacy. Their new "Lesson Plan Links" are a comprehensive collection of lesson plan web sites aimed at the elementary, secondary and academic school levels. What a wealth of information!
Highlands Regional Library Cooperative is registered as a
New Jersey Department of Education Professional Development Provider - Registration #213
