Los Angeles Community Colleges Library Development Program.
Hayes, Robert M.
Designed as a supplement to the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) Libraries' review of their current situation, this report presents an assessment of administrative support and staffing of the libraries in the LACCD, and offers recommendations for maintaining and improving their operations. Following introductory comments on the purposes of the evaluation, initial issues of concern are identified and discussed, including: (1) instructional support; (2) faculty support; (3) information skills; (4) student support; (5) internal operations; and (6) administrative organization. The report also identifies important areas that were not covered by the study. After presenting the schedule of meetings with district library staff, an assessment is provided of the overall value of the libraries, financial support, administrative support, and staffing. Recommendations concerning administration, staffing, and automation are followed by a potential 5-year development program for the libraries. (EJV)
