Ten Steps for the Establishment of the Comprehensive Community College Library.
Tanis, Norman E.
Because community college boards of trustees and citizens committees often make the initial decisions about major college policies and building plans, it is important that they become aware of the basic sequence of events which will promote excellent community college libraries. The ten steps involve: (1) provision of funds for the library in the capital funds secured for the new campus, (2) appointment of a capable head librarian, (3) utilization of a well-qualified library consultant, (4) establishment of a code of library policy and procedure, (5) priority to be given for provision of library materials, (6) considering the library to be a materials resource center, (7) long-range budgeting, (8) visits to similar libraries, (9) writing the specifications for the consultant, and (10) establishing cooperative relationships with other libraries.
