Instruction and Library Orientation
Today’s librarians include teaching and orientation sessions for incoming students in their professional responsibilities. A program of formal library instruction is also associated with Wallace’s tenure. In an effort to promote the importance of the library to undergraduates, he participated in lectures directed at new students in the University’s three largest faculties. By 1976, an instruction program in academic research methods and library use was attended by over 2,500 students each year. Today, participants number 54,000 annually.
