Strategic Goals of the Library, San Jacinto College Central, 1996-1999.
Clark, Jay B.
San Jacinto College's Central Campus developed a 4-year plan to bring the library's technology, college, and facilities to a level equal to libraries of other Texas Community Colleges. The first major goal for the library is to select and deliver information that students and faculty need at the time of need, thereby redefining library resources in terms of access and holdings. This is to be accomplished through increased training, increased collection expenditures from $104,000 to $180,000 over 4 years to rebuild the collection in each subject field, and improving access to journals and other materials. The second goal is to create and maintain systems that provide information for students and faculty, including widening access to the Internet resources, upgrading the online catalog, developing guides to electronic resources, and improving acquisitions, reserves, and security systems. The third goal is to educate faculty and students to better access information by adding staff and improving links between the library and the faculty. The fourth goal is to support the building, furnishings, and infrastructure of the library to provide information services for the students in an attractive learning environment. The replacement of wall coverings, furniture, and carpeting, and other needed facilities improvements is expected to cost $117,654 over the 4-year period. The final goal is to continue planning for library information services. The costs of the improvements are projected to be $72,554 in 1996, $108,260 in 1997, $205,100 in 1998, and $113,500 in 1999.
