ELIMINATE TABOOS, OUTFIT YOUR LIBRARY IN SIX MONTHS.
NEWMAN, MAYRELEE
DURING A 6-MONTH PERIOD, EL CENTRO JUNIOR COLLEGE, DALLAS, TEXAS, ESTABLISHED A LEARNING RESOURCES LIBRARY FOR A 2,000-STUDENT POPULATION IN A FORMER DEPARTMENT STORE. THE TASK INCLUDED THREE GROUPS OF ACTIVITIES--(1) FACILITY PLANNING AND OBTAINING FURNITURE AND EQUIPMENT, (2) ACQUISITION AND PROCESSING OF A BASIC COLLECTION, INCLUDING PRINTED AND NONPRINTED MEDIA, AND (3) CREATION OF STAFF AND PROGRAMING SYSTEMS FOR USE AND CONTROL. THE BASIC COLLECTION WAS SELECTED FROM SEVERAL PUBLISHED LISTS. LIBRARY OF CONGRESS CATALOGING WAS ADOPTED BECAUSE IT ELIMINATES REPETITIVE DECISION-MAKING, LENDS ITSELF TO AUTOMATED IDENTIFICATION OF ITEMS, AND ALLOWS TIE-INS WITH NATIONAL NETWORKS. THE LIBRARY IS CHARACTERIZED BY AUTOMATED PROCEDURES, A TOTAL RESOURCE APPROACH, AND CATALOGS IN BOOK FORM TO REPLACE CARD FILES. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY BUSINESS," VOLUME 42, NUMBER 6, JUNE 1967. (WO)
