Personnel & Materials Guidelines for Learning Resources Programs in Community Colleges.
Learning Resources Association of California Community Colleges, Suisun.
In order to provide specific planning assistance, this paper describes three major components of a learning resources program: (1) the library or traditional print materials component; (2) the learning center component, which is an innovative learning environment offering individualized and conventional classroom instruction and/or non-traditional instruction directly to the students; and (3) the media services component, which includes audio-visual and/or non-book materials and includes the production and acquisition of instructional materials and the installation and operation of audio-visual equipment and materials. In all three components, instructional development for faculty and staff is imperative, as are facility design and types of instructional programs offered. The report uses total college enrollment, as opposed to day-graded or full-time equivalent, as its most important unit of measurement. Two appended articles discuss guidelines and quantitative standards, and a glossary of terms is included. (AS)
