SHORES, LOUIS
THE ROLE OF THE LIBRARY OR LEARNING RESOURCE CENTER, ITS RELATIONSHIP TO THE JUNIOR COLLEGE'S EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, ITS ORGANIZATION AND ADMINISTRATION, THE FACILITIES REQUIRED AND THE CONCEPT OF THE LIBRARY JUNIOR COLLEGE ARE DISCUSSED IN LIGHT OF CURRENT TRENDS IN JUNIOR COLLEGE ORGANIZATION AND THE INCREASED DEMAND FOR INDEPENDENT STUDY. THE LIBRARY JUNIOR COLLEGE IS A LIMITED ENROLLMENT INSTITUTION OF APPROXIMATELY ONE THOUSAND STUDENTS WHICH CENTERS ABOUT AN ADEQUATE LIBRARY FACILITY FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING MAXIMUM ACCESS TO LEARNING MATERIALS FOR INDEPENDENT STUDY. THE LIBRARY PERSONNEL ARE VIEWED AS EDUCATORS IN ADDITION TO THEIR NORMAL ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTION. THE FACILITIES, WHICH SUCH A CENTER SHOULD INCLUDE, ARE DISCUSSED IN TERMS OF THE NUMBER OF DOCUMENTS, TYPES OF MATERIALS HANDLED, COMMUNICATION TECHNIQUES AND THE ACCOMMODATIONS REQUIRED FOR FACULTY AND STUDENTS. THE ORGANIZATION IS VIEWED AS ONE BASED ON COOPERATION AND AUTOMATION TO PROVIDE MAXIMUM RETRIEVAL OF DOCUMENTS FROM THE LIBRARY AND ASSOCIATED LIBRARIES. WITH THE INCREASED EMPHASIS ON INDEPENDENT STUDY, THE LIBRARY JUNIOR COLLEGE COULD PROVIDE A HIGH DEGREE OF UTILIZATION OF THE LIBRARY AS THE PRIMARY RESOURCE CENTER FOR THE CAMPUS.
