Abstract The paper critically analyses one of the instructional elements (i.e. Objective) of self-learning materials supplied by the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) to the Bachelor of Library and Information Science (BLIS) learners. Using the original Bloom's taxonomy of learning objectives, the study reveals that about 30 per cent of objective statements are written without any thought to the guidelines. Indepth analysis further shows that only 16.31 per cent are higher order objectives. The paper also makes a case for revision of the learning materials in light of the revised Bloom's Taxonomy.
