The Function of the Library in A College of Advanced Education.
Bryan, Harrison; Hean, Evelyn Lorna
A research study based largely on the published literature and including interviews with an extensive selection of librarians and library users, educationalists and employers, was made of the function of the library in a college of advanced educations. (CAE). The three main areas of investigation were use patterns, collection analysis, and processing and service technology. Conclusions were that the CAE's are making a genuine contribution to diversity in tertiary education and will provide a viable alternative to university education for those whose interest lies in technology. Teaching methodology will require new attitudes to encourage life-long learning -- teaching methods, and libraries must find their place in this process and contribute positively to it. (AB)
