Additional Thoughts About the Library-College: Toward a College Without Walls.
Audiovisual Journal, v3 n5 May 1969
The basic component of the "library-college- learning method is the idea of independent study and individualized learning. In line with the library-college method of learning and teaching, educators are becoming aware of information available from nonprint sources and from sources outside the traditional educational establishment; the community is viewed as a learning center and work-experience in the community is considered part of the educational process. As higher education moves toward a "college without walls," libraries are becoming learning centers without walls. Students will be able to tap resources outside the walls of the library by the use of nationwide computer hook-ups. In the library-college method of learning, the curriculum accents intellectual development through independent study in the library carrel and learning through interaction with the community, thus solving the problems of the students' need for personal attention and relevance in the curriculum. The library-college is the learning mode of the future; it is the "college without walls." (MB)
