During the first month of every academic year there should be planned programmes for familiarising the library with the students.Then only they can use the resources and services effectively.They should know how to search the OPAC,how to find the book from the shelf by identifying the DDC numbers,how to review a book, how to refer, how to take notes, etc.

The librarian can conduct presentations regarding this with the help of diplays,ppt. She can publish library guides,booklets or brochures.

Library periods can be used for taking selflearning classes. She can give lectures and invite interested people to mingle with the children.

Remember that it is their first library periods and what efferts we take now will paid later.
