Identifying the Future Roles of the Library at the Community College: A Delphi Study.
Sim, Yong Sup
Divided into five parts, this report describes a research project which used the Delphi method to identify the future roles of the library at Mercer County Community College through 1986, and to set priorities for those roles. The introductory section includes definitions of the problem, the terms used, the subject, and the organization of the study, as well as a review of the literature. A discussion of procedures and methodology focuses on the participants--faculty/staff, students, librarians from other institutions, and a jury of experts--and the three questionnaires used to gather data. Analysis of the data from all three rounds is described, and the ten roles considered to be the most significant are listed. The summary and recommendations include a priority-ranked list of 79 future library roles. Graphs and tables are used to display data throughout the report and a bibliography is included. A list of the participants, copies of the three questionnaires, and the primary role statements generated by the first questionnaire are appended. (JD)
