Abstract: Georgia College, a four-year senior college in the University System, offers only limited informal library instruction to its students. In the past, with the exception of English 102 classes, it has been offered on an ad hoc basis as individual faculty members have requested it. One justification for the lack of a structured library orientation program has been the premise, current in the library profession, that the most effective bibliographic instruction is personalized, "hands-on" experience.
