Perrault, Anna H.; Madaus, J. Richard; Armbrister, Ann; Dixon, Jeannie; Smith, Rhonda
This Library Information Network for Community Colleges (LINCC) collection assessment provides detailed data for bibliographic records of monographs in the LINCC database of library/learning resource (L/LRC) collections of Florida's 28 public community colleges. Data were analyzed by five broad subject groupings and 47 individual subject disciplines for the time period 1970-1998. The data were analyzed from three perspectives: the statewide aggregated database; three peer groups arranged by enrollment size; and each individual college collection. The four main analyses employed were median age, subjects as a proportion of total resources, proportions of subject by time interval, and the ration of monographic records to full-time equivalent students. The first section of this report covers the analysis of the aggregate LINCC database as a whole, and the three groupings of Florida community colleges by size of enrollment are analyzed as peer groups in the second section. Data tables and figures are appended. (AEF)
