We'vs a Story to Tell the Nations: A Plan for Decentralized Library Services, Northland Pioneer College, Navajo County, Arizona.
Rothlisberg, Allen P.
Northland Pioneer College (NPC) consists of five mini-centers located throughout Navajo County (Arizona), and extension classes offered in areas where no centers have been established. Because it was financially impossible to create separate libraries to service all these areas, a decentralized library system was needed. The Holbrook Center, which houses the administrative offices, will house the main reference collection. Basic reference collections will also be set up at each center and in the mobile learning resources unit, which will travel to the extension classes and mini-centers. A conventional card catalog will be maintained in the Holbrook Center. In other centers, and in the mobile unit, ROM II microfilm card catalogs will be installed. The ROM II catalogs will reflect the holdings of Yavapai College, Mohave Community College, and NPC. The three colleges involved in the ROM II project will cooperate in buying and borrowing library materials. In addition to a complete description of the proposed library system, this report contains a bibliography of materials pertinent to decentralized education. The proposal for federal assistance for the creation of ROM II card catalogs at branch campuses of the three colleges, and for the installation of teletype terminals at each main college library, is appended.
