Station Occupancy Study of Seventeen Learning Resource Centers.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
This study was directed toward station occupancy, station use, and hours and days of use in learning resource centers (LRC) in California Community Colleges. Other factors measured were day-graded students, number of faculty, off-shelf use of materials, and student attendance at print, non-print, and related instructional service areas. The study covered one full week in the spring semester. Conclusions indicate that: (1) occupancy was lower than anticipated, (2) occupancy is highest when classroom use is highest, (3) LRC facilities built for day-graded students are adequate to support evening patrons, (4) except at peak loads, student stations could be used for other LRC activities, (5) station use could be increased without adding more space and seating capacity, and (6) occupancy percentages vary between new colleges which are expanding and established colleges with developed collections. Data are summarized in charts and recommendations are presented. (Author/DAG)
