Learning Resources: Off-Campus Services.
Byrd, Fay
This study was conducted to evaluate the need for and value of learning resources services for off-campus classes at Wilkes Community College (WCC). Procedures included: (1) a questionnaire to survey kinds of services offered by other North Carolina community colleges/technical institutes to their off-campus classes; (2) an examination of the course offerings at WCC to determine staff requirements, types of media needed, and potential conflicts with on-campus classes; (3) a questionnaire to determine the needs and attitudes of off-campus instructors; (4) employment of a qualified librarian to deliver the identified services and to introduce them to off-campus teachers and students; (5) a followup survey to evaluate the success of the services provided; (6) a comparative analysis of students who were exposed to the services and students who were not exposed to them to determine the significance of the approach; and (7) an effort to determine the possible need for a special vehicle to transport the materials. Fifty-five percent of those colleges responding provide services to off-campus classes. The study concluded that the services are needed and of significant value, but that a special vehicle is unnecessary. The document includes detailed tabulations of results, the questionnaires, and a literature review. (DC)
