Iranian Junior College Library Standards.
Harvey, John F.
These standards are designed to provide a guide for library development in Iranian one and two year colleges. The institutions which they serve offer a diversity of post-high school instructional programs, some preparing students for elementary school teaching, or for a trade, some of them terminal as would be found in community and technical colleges, others preparing for transfer to four year colleges or universities. Agricultural and liberal arts colleges and institutions are included here, also. These standards have been adapted from foreign library standards to fit the Iranian situation. They have been established to guide Iranian academic librarians seeking to know the factors normally associated with good quality library service. The standards are neither intended to lead to poor service nor to outstanding service, but to a level of good service in between. Further, they are considered to be minimum, not maximum, standards, though it is probable that few Iranian libraries can meet many of them initially. On the other hand, the library which has reached a particular standard should not be completely satisfied with its accomplishment but should continue to improve until it can give outstanding service in that area and can reach the standards in other areas, also. It should be clear that the purpose of these standards is to improve Iranian libraries, not to standardize them. (LI 004244 through 004247 and LI 004249 through 004267 are related.) (Author)
