Administrative Supports Necessary to Insure Faculty Commitment: The Learning Resources Center of Passaic County College Model for Delivering Library Services to the Faculty and Students in the Institution's External Program.
Davila, Daniel
Information is provided on the library support services offered to faculty and students in Passaic County Community College's (PCCC's) External Program, which offers a variety of credit and non-credit courses at five Extension Centers located throughout the county. After introductory material, the paper describes the administration, offerings, faculty, students, and locations of the External Program, and the philosophy and services of PCCC's Learning Resources Center (LRC). The next sections discuss the relationship of the LRC and External Program and specify the resources and services available to students and faculty through a cooperative agreement with public libraries in the areas where the Extension Centers are located. Under the agreement, the LRC administers an annual allocation to participating libraries that is half of the LRC budget for books and other library materials. Participating libraries are responsible for lending library materials, providing reference services, making audio-visual equipment and films available, and receiving course-related materials. The LRC provides materials to supplement the libraries' collections, processes purchases, and assists with specialized reference. Next, the paper discusses the accessibility of resources and information to External Program faculty and students. After describing the management, personnel, and finances of the library support system, the paper concludes with a brief discussion of plans for PCCC's library services. (HB)
