Case Study of a Hypothetical Higher Education Library Media Center.
Reppert, James E.
This paper describes the organizational scope, structure, and financial approach of a mock university higher education library media center (i.e., an instructional technology center which functions primarily as a curriculum or training support agency). The paper is organized according to objectives in four main categories. The first category is a general overview of the plan, including background and philosophy, goals and objectives, a budgetary plan for a five-year period, a general long-range plan, recommendations identifying what will be needed to achieve the goals, future plans for a five-year time period, written priorities, an administrative flow chart, and an organized plan for grant monies. Print/nonprint hardware and software are addressed in the second and third categories. Related objectives include analysis of current inventory holdings and comparison with state and national guidelines for accreditation, a five-year set of hardware/software goals, expenditure lists of hardware/software that coincide with the five-year plan, specifications for hardware/software to be purchased during the first year, estimates of long-range hardware/software costs, and plans for grant monies. Space, facilities, personnel, resumes, in-service plans, policies, forms (including evaluation), job descriptions, client relationships, public relations, and survival strategies are considered in the fourth category.
