Academic Libraries in the Service of Faculty Development: A Collection of Essays Commissioned by the Colorado Academic Library Committee.
Pence, James L., Ed.; Haynes, Evelyn, Ed.
The first part of this monograph contains three essays that define faculty development and describe development activities, including library-related initiatives. "Using Faculty Development to Meet the Challenges of Higher Education" (Martin Tessmer) describes how development activities can help college educators meet teaching, professional, and personal challenges, focusing on their information service needs. "Understanding Faculty Development" (James L. Pence) presents a model for linking faculty development to institutional strategic planning. "The Role of the Academic Library in Providing Support for Faculty Development" (Evelyn Haynes) describes development programs academic libraries have initiated, sponsored, or supported. A second set of essays describes the variety of structures built to accommodate faculty development programs. "Organizational Structures for Faculty Development" (Clyde Tucker, Mary Ann Shea) identifies major factors affecting the framework within which development may occur. "Centralized Campus Program" (Mary Ann Shea) describes an example of a centralized approach to serving information and development needs of faculty across the disciplines. "A Decentralized Approach: The Departmental Program at the U.S. Air Force Academy" (Carl Reddel) provides an example of a decentralized approach to serving faculty in a disciplinary context. "Faculty Development Opportunities in Academic Administration" (James Pence) describes a program that gives faculty administrative experience while they perform tasks critical to the institution. Ninety references are contained overall. (KRN)
