Standards for College and University Learning Resources Programs. AECT Task Force II.
Association for Educational Communications and Technology, Washington, DC.
These standards describe the purposes and services, (including administrative, financial, and evaluative elements) of effective learning resources programs (LRPs), and outline the development of a single integrated service concerned with the improvement of instruction. An introductory section describes the roles, objectives, and purposes of LRPs and a rationale for the standards. The scope and functions of the LRP are then detailed, including developmental, distribution, creative/production, materials/resources, maintenance and engineering, and research/evaluation functions; elements of adequate service; general standards for LRPs; and specific standards for various functions, the budget, and administration. It is recommended that data be collected on such LRP components as staff, facilities, budget, services, and resources; that a mechanism be provided for publication of data; and that the collection of data be monitored for publication. Appendices include the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) Learning Resources Program Profile; Standards for Learning Resources Programs--Instructional Check Sheet; Management Process Model for the Learning Resources Program Profile; Guide for Self Study of Learning Resources Programs in Higher Education; Guidelines for Depreciation of Equipment; and Constituent Members of the Council on Joint Secondary Accreditation. A 7-page bibliography and 12 charts, which depict standards by functions and are suitable for making transparencies, are included. (LMM)
