Exploring the Library
At last! Here is a book that delivers the goods on using and enjoying the full complement of services a library has to offer, from books and periodicals to a host of online resources, audiovisual materials, and other print and computer-based resources. Young readers will learn about card catalog and online catalog entries and will find out about using print reference materials and borrowed books at home. They will discover the difference between a reference librarian and a school librarian, cataloger, online specialist, and bibliographer. Readers will also learn about good library behavior. But most of all, they will learn how to enjoy their school and local libraries to the fullest.
