Resource Sharing for Better Service: The Northland Pioneer College/Mogollon High School Experiment.
Rothlisberg, Allen P.
Northland Pioneer College, a decentralized community college serving rurally populated Northeastern Arizona, has a cooperative agreement with Mogollon High School Library in Heber to serve both college and high school students and faculty. Under this experimental agreement, on-site learning resource center services are provided by the high school, while cooperative reference services are provided by the college learning resource center in Holbrook. The college center also provides collections of materials which are sent on permanent loan to the high school library, helps with interlibrary loans, and faxes copies of articles for students and faculty. A limited amount of student help is also provided, as well as a COM (computer output microfilm) catalog of college holdings. Deliveries are made by shuttle service twice a week when classes are in session or overnight by UPS at other times. Reactions to this program have been favorable during the year that it has been in operation, and plans for the future include a one unit research skills class to be offered to area students in the fall and again in the spring.
