Books for Colleges of Education Libraries Project, Karnataka, India. (A Cooperative Acquisition Plan).
Umapathy, K. Setty
The proposed 3-year project described in this paper would focus on the improvement of library service in colleges of education in the state of Karnataka through collection building. While staff, service, and budget problems are also cited, this project would emphasize the formulation of standards for collections and the development of a cooperative acquisition program. The first step in this process would be the compilation of a master want list by a committee representing the universities, colleges of education, library educators, and professional associations. The basic list of 10,000 book titles would be reviewed by subject specialists before being submitted to college of education libraries, where librarians, in consultation with faculty and students, would indicate the 5,000 titles they would like to have. Consolidated orders for the titles selected would be prepared by the project center, where items would also be cataloged before being sent to individual libraries. It is recommended that the institutions concerned jointly approach the Ministry of Education for the state and the University Grants Commission of India and request a one time grant to cover the total cost of such a project.
