One of the goals of Central Michigan University's Off-Campus Library Services is to provide bibliographic instruction. Over the years the CMU off-campus librarians have made a concerted effort to provide bibliographic instruction to as many CMU off-campus students and faculty as possible, to assist in their use of library resources, as well as to market the library services. CMU's Off-Campus Library Services setting is mainly decentralized, apart from the main campus library, thereby requiring the use of local libraries and referral agencies to provide point-of-use bibliographic instruction. The Michigan Metropolitan (MIMET) region of CMU's Off-Campus Library Services has utilized several local libraries for the provision of bibliographic instruction for the MSA 600, Administrative Research Report Method course. This paper will examine the outcome of resource sharing through the bibliographic instruction sessions provided by CMU librarians for CMU off-campus students at local area libraries.
