Meeting the Competitive Challenge: Encouraging the Use of Community College Library Facilities in Rural, Isolated, Northeastern Arizona.
Rothlisberg, Allen P.
This paper describes the approaches taken to improve library service at Northland Pioneer College, a decentralized community college in rural Arizona with learning resource centers at 10 locations in Navaho and Apache counties. Three methods of providing instruction for research papers--class tours of learning resource facilities, presenting guest lectures on writing research papers, and a one-credit class on research paper writing--are discussed. Incentives arranged in cooperation with local merchants to encourage quality student work are described, e.g., free pizzas and video rentals, and the particular effectiveness of such incentives in a rural area is considered. Copies of fliers promoting the incentive program and listing rules for student participation are attached. (Contains 9 references.) (MES)
