As a large-scale Library Instruction Program (LIP) was implemented, it was evaluated at each stage by means of questionnaires. Data derived from the questionnaires helped change the content of the LIP lectures, the type of materials distributed to the students, and the format of the exercises. It also evaluated the success the program had in reaching incoming students and in giving them experience in using library tools. Separate surveys also showed that students retained their skills after a period of time, improved their attitudes toward the library, and increased their use of the library resources. LIP's success has led to the development of course-related instruction for upper level students.
