Project ACCESS: A Curriculum-Based Collection Evaluation and Selection System Library Model for Community Colleges.
Meerdink, Richard; And Others
This proposal for funding for Project ACCESS (A Curriculum-based Collection Evaluation and Selection System) Library Model for community colleges begins with a project description that discusses curriculum-based collection and services and computer-based operations and management at the Milwaukee (Wisconsin) Area Technical College (MATC) libraries. The next section addresses the need and rationale for a curriculum-based library, including results of a faculty survey, advantages of CD-ROM technology, state mandates for library cooperation, and results of a research review; and the third section presents a statement of objectives. The plan of operations for the 3-year proposal is then described for each objective, and credentials of key and support personnel are summarized. Project evaluation, budget and cost effectiveness, dissemination of project reports, and adequacy of MATC resources are also addressed. Supplemental materials include the proposed budget; a list of MATC programs; a booklet on the MATC Faculty Resource Center that includes a list of curriculum-related materials; minutes of committee meetings; a questionnaire designed to assess priorities for the Faculty Resource Center together with survey results; a report on site visits to other libraries; a report and recommendations leading to the formation of the existing Faculty Resource Center; and personnel resumes.
