THE CHANGING ROLE OF THE LIBRARY ON THE JUNIOR COLLEGE CAMPUS - A CASE STUDY AT MT. SAN JACINTO COLLEGE.
LEE, C. LORAN
THE FIRST STEP IN USING THE MULTIMEDIA APPROACH IS WRITING OBJECTIVES IN BEHAVIORAL TERMS. THE SECOND STEP INVOLVES THE DETERMINATION OF WHICH MEDIA OR "TOOLS" WILL BEST MEET THE NEEDS OF THE STUDENTS IN ACCOMPLISHING THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES. ADMINISTRATORS AT MOUNT SAN JACINTO FELT THAT THE ROLE OF THE LIBRARY IN THIS APPROACH IS TO SERVE THE INSTRUCTIONAL NEEDS OF THE SCHOOL. RESEARCH INTO PLANNING THE NEW LIBRARY REVEALED THE WEAKNESSES OF THE TRADITIONAL LIBRARY. THE INSTRUCTIONAL CENTER LIBRARY (ICL) IS CONCEIVED AS A TOTAL INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCE CENTER. THE IMPLICATIONS FOR LIBRARY PERSONNEL ARE GREAT. THE LIBRARIAN MUST BE AWARE OF THE PROBLEMS IN TEACHING, HAVE HAD EXPERIENCE IN AUDIOVISUAL WORK, HAVE HAD ADEQUATE LIBRARY TRAINING, AND POSSESS AN APPROPRIATE CREDENTIAL. THE ICL FACILITIES INCLUDE CARRELS WITH FILMSTRIP PROJECTORS AND TAPE RECORDER, FACULTY OFFICES, CLASSROOMS, SMALL GROUP-DISCUSSION ROOMS, LISTENING STATIONS, AND THE MULTIMEDIA MATERIALS WHICH EACH INSTRUCTOR MUST PRODUCE TO MEET HIS OBJECTIVES. THERE HAVE BEEN WEEKLY AND MONTHLY INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL CIRCULATION REPORTS AND A STUDENT AND FACULTY QUESTIONNAIRE TO DETERMINE THE REACTIONS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT. SAMPLES AND ANALYSIS OF THE QUESTIONNARIES ARE INCLUDED IN THE REPORT. (HS)
