Chicago's Study Unlimited; College Courses in the Library.
By its eleventh month, Study Unlimited, a joint effort of the Chicago Public Library and the City Colleges of Chicago, included over 100 students pursuing courses for credit in three different city locations. A method of study utilizing videocassettes in conjuction with texts, study guides, and a library of related readings made it possible for students to apply for their examinations when they felt ready to do so. A curriculum of essential general education courses leading to the Associate in Arts degree was available. The students could do all their work, including consultations with faculty and counselors, in the public library. Librarians aided the students and administered examinations. The program provided a viable educational alternative for the mature working person. (Author/PF)
