A Study of the Administration, Utilization and Collection Development Policies of Government Document Collections in Community College Libraries Which Have Been Designated as Depositories.
Results of a survey of 51 community college depository libraries are reported. The objectives of the study were to: (1) collect basic data on depositories in community college libraries; (2) ascertain the 'state of the art' in this type of depository with reference to administration, collection development, and utilization of these materials; (3) determine whether definite patterns have evolved which are characteristic of community colleges in these functions; (4) attempt to account for the differences which exist among colleges; and (5) collect information which would be useful for community college depositories for self-study purposes. Recommendations include encouraging more community colleges to become depository libraries. It is also suggested that a program be implemented by the Government Printing Office to promote more communication and greater cooperation among neighboring depositories, with the regional depository taking a more active role in promoting this communication.
