STRENGTHENING THE COLLEGE LIBRARY.
JACOBS, KARL J.; TANIS, NORMAN E.
A COMMITTEE AT HENRY FORD COMMUNITY COLLEGE WAS ESTABLISHED TO STUDY THE LIBRARY, FORMULATE AN EVALUATION, AND DEVELOP A SERIES OF RECOMMENDATIONS ISSUING OUT OF AND BASED ON THE STUDY. THE COMMITTEE USED THE JUNIOR COLLEGE LIBRARY STANDARDS AS THE INSTRUMENT FOR JUDGING THE LIBRARY PROGRAM. FROM EACH OF THE EIGHT SECTIONS OF THE STANDARDS, THEY DEVELOPED A SERIES OF QUESTIONS. WITH THIS SERIES, THE COMMITTEE STUDIED AND EVALUATED THE COLLECTION, POLICIES, FACILITIES, AND ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES OF THE LIBRARY. SUCH A DEVICE IS VALUABLE IN (1) CALLING ATTENTION TO PROBLEMS, (2) PROVISION OF CLEAR, CONCISE, READILY AVAILABLE DATA FOR ADMINISTRATIVE DECISIONS, (3) PROVISION OF A BASIS FOR ACCREDITATION SELF-STUDIES, AND (4) OFFERING DATA CONCERNING NEEDS, ESPECIALLY TO PROVIDE COLLEGE SPONSORS. THE QUESTIONS ARE ARRANGED IN CATEGORIES--(1) FUNCTIONS, (2) STRUCTURE AND GOVERNMENT, (3) BUDGET, (4) STAFF, (5) COLLECTION, (6) FACILITY, (7) QUALITY OF SERVICE AND ITS EVALUATION, AND (8) INTERLIBRARY COOPERATION. THIS DOCUMENT IS PUBLISHED IN "IMPROVING COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY TEACHING," VOLUME 12, NUMBER 2, SPRING 1964. (WO)
