utilized a wide variety of instructional resources in their
courses. Instructional resources used in at least 50 per
cent of vooatlonal-teohnloal oourses were: audio-visual
materials, 88 per oent; departmental books, 73 per cent;
personally owned books, 72 per cent; manufacturers'
literature other than service manuals, 63 per cent;
information from notes of previously taken courses, 63
per cent; departmentally prepared syllabi, $8 per cent;
personally owned Journals, 56 per cent; self-prepared
syllabi, 53 per cent; manufacturers' service manuals, 52
per cent; and association publications, 50 per cent.
Library owned printed materials were used as instruc-
tional resouroes considerably less than personal or depart-
mental printed materials. Less than one-third of the
instructors required library assignments in their courses
and less than one-third figured library assignments in
their final grades. The reason most cited by non-library
users, 88 per cent, was "my courses predominately involve
skill development, materials must be readily accessible to
the classroom, laboratory or shop."
Additional analyses of the data revealed little rela-
tionship between the use of instructional resources and
instructor characteristics cited in this study. There was
also little relationship between instructor attitudes to-
ward use or non-use of the library and such characteristics.
