Abstract

Two library instructional videotapes, developed by the University of California, Irvine, General Library, were evaluated for their teaching effectweness. An experimental design was utilized. Results indicated that after viewing the two videotapes, students in the experimental group performed significantly better on a posttest of library skills than students in the control group. The implication of these findings is discussed with special reference to the future use of "mechanical" media in library instruction.
