The current practice of library use education in vocational high schools: The current library use education is mainly practiced in freshman orientation. And so far there are no elective courses set up for library use education, due to the difficulty of time scheduling. In a word, time arrangement and students’ willingness are the priorities by now. The library use education still needs to be enhanced; nevertheless, among all schools most effective are the using of Internet resources, and library-visiting tour. II. The goals of library use education listed by Directors of libraries: They are, in the sequence of importance: 1. to increase students’ self- learning abilities, 2. to let students know how to use information media, 3. to assist students’ learning activities, 4. to cultivate students’ power of using libraries and information, 5. to provide recreations and entertainments for students, 6. to foster students’ character, 7. to form students’ life-learning habits, 8. to enlighten students’ interest of reading, 9. to promote students’ studying atmosphere, and 10. to change students’ learning methods and attitudes. III. The viewpoints of vocational high school students towards library-using education: Their participating motives are mainly coming from class needs and school arrangements. They believe participating is helpful in their using libraries. Those who are unwilling to participate are mostly because they have no time, they are lack of interest, and they would rather ask teachers or classmates instead. Most of the students show their willingness to learn more knowledge and skills on using libraries. Generally, they use libraries to study by themselves and to borrow and return books. IV. The attitudes towards the library-using education are different among those students with certain different backgrounds. Based on the above conclusions, the research has rendered suggestions to schools and education authorities.
