Public demands for quality and equality in the institution of education has effected research and redesigning in library-media orientation. Options for optimum teaching and learning of skills, aside from the traditional method, have been researched. Few of these research designs have been scientific. This experimental study, using eighth-grade learners, investigated the use of Instructional Packages as one effective option. Traditional Lecture Packages which did not provide for individual differences were compared to learner-based instruction in the design of Instructional Packages. Quotation Books, the instrument used to collect the data, measured the achievement of learners both before and after the study. The traditional method of library-media orientation proved most effective in this experimental study.
