[The Learning Resource Center of the Two-Year College.]
Martorana, S. V.; And Others
This collection of papers investigates various aspects of the library as a Learning Resource Center. The first paper focuses on targets for innovation and points to the administrators of Learning Resource Centers as agents for constructive change in their junior colleges. The second paper shows that the library takes on a dynamic teaching function as new instructional materials are incorporated into the traditional library collection; the instructor, librarian, and audiovisualist share the functions of resource directors and teachers. The third article has implications for stimulating faculty to use the facilities of the college's Learning Resource Center. They include encouraging faculty to try new approaches to teaching and to visit other colleges that are doing new and different things. Stumbling blocks and budget considerations are also briefly discussed. The fourth article stresses the need for information to be actively moved by, rather than passively stored in, a Learning Resource Center. The final article deals with the new trend toward self-instruction and the learning facilities developed to service it. The cost, types and use of facilities is discussed with particular attention given to Portable Carrel Kits which consist of carrying case, cassette tape player, and projector. They can be rented and taken home or used in any other study facility. (CA)
