College Library Technology and Cooperation Grants Program, Higher Education Act, Title II-D. Final Performance Report.
Hanifan, Thomas; Hoogheem, Cynthia L.
The Eastern Iowa Community College District (EICCD) libraries received a federal College Library Technology and Cooperation grant to provide and link public access catalogs at each college of the district--Clinton Community College, Muscatine Community College, and Scott Community College. That network is named Quad-LINC (Quad Cities Libraries in Cooperation). Quad-LINC is located in the Quad Cities area of western Illinois and eastern Iowa. An online computer terminal and a compact disk workstation were acquired for each library. This document is the final performance report of the project. The objectives and activities of the study are identified, and the results of each are given. A list of revisions to the project are listed as well as the impact on users. Three elements compromise the evaluation plan: user satisfaction; level of inter-library loan requests and/or reciprocal borrowing; and improvement in users' ability to identify resources in their "home" libraries. Finally, the future plans of the project and the budget details are presented. The questionnaire to determine user satisfaction is included. (JLB)
