The Student and The Library

The Student and The Library A few years after my Wanderjahr among the libraries which I have described it fell to my lot, as part of my duties as Lecturer in History at Jordanhill College, to undertake the work of introducing students to the fascinating task of exploring libraries and of employing books as instruments of research. This work was undertaken not primarily with the view of producing specialists in History but mainly from consideration of the fact that to a student trained in the constructive work of the historian the teaching of History to children becomes invested with an interest altogether unknown to people whose acquaintance with History has been limited to the laboured conning of mediocre textbooks. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

A few years after my Wanderjahr among the libraries which I have described it fell to my lot, as part of my duties as Lecturer in History at Jordanhill College, to undertake the work of introducing students to the fascinating task of exploring libraries and of employing books as instruments of research. This work was undertaken not primarily with the view of producing specialists in History but mainly from consideration of the fact that to a student trained in the constructive work of the historian the teaching of History to children becomes invested with an interest altogether unknown to people whose acquaintance with History has been limited to the laboured conning of mediocre textbooks.
