THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE LIBRARY, AN APPRAISAL OF CURRENT PRACTICE.
WHEELER, HELEN RIPPIER
THE BASIS FOR A QUESTIONNAIRE SENT TO LIBRARY DIRECTORS IN 198 PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES WAS A LIST OF 10 CRITERIA--(1) THE LIBRARY PROGRAM REFLECTS THE COLLEGE CURRICULUM, OBJECTIVES, AND FUNCTIONS. (2) CONTINUOUS EVALUATION OF THE LIBRARY IS PROVIDED BY APPROPRIATE TECHNIQUES AND MEASURES. (3) THE LIBRARY FACILITATES THE FACULTY'S RESEARCH AND PROFESSIONAL GROWTH. (4) INSTRUCTION IN LIBRARY USAGE IS PROVIDED TO MEET STUDENT NEEDS. (5) THE LIBRARY SPONSORS NON-BOOK, LIBRARY-RELATED ACTIVITIES. (6) THE LIBRARY SERVES AS THE COLLEGE'S RESOURCE MATERIALS CENTER. (7) THE LIBRARY COLLECTION AND SERVICES ARE APPROPRIATE FOR THE COLLEGE'S SPECIALIZED FUNCTIONS. (8) THE LIBRARY COLLECTION AND SERVICES ARE APPROPRIATE FOR THE COLLEGE'S NONCURRICULAR LEARNING EXPERIENCES. (9) ARRANGEMENT AND SERVICING OF MATERIALS FACILITATE USE BY STUDENTS AND FACULTY. (10) THE LIBRARY IS ADMINISTERED EFFECIENTLY AND EFFECTIVELY WITHIN THE COLLEGE POLICIES. FROM THE RETURNS THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT (1) THE TYPICAL JUNIOR COLLEGE DOES NOT PROVIDE MINIMAL BASIC COLLEGIATE LIBRARY SERVICES, (2) JUNIOR COLLEGE LIBRARIES ARE INADEQUATELY FINANCED, AND (3) LIBRARY DIRECTORS ARE AWARE OF LIBRARY SERVICE TECHNIQUES AND THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE ROLE BUT ARE HAMPERED BY LACK OF FUNDS.
