Intercom: Newsletter of the Learning Resources Association of the California Community Colleges, v35 n1-3 Oct 1999-May 2000
These documents compose the Learning Resources Association of California Community Colleges (LRACCC) newsletters for the 1999-2000 academic year. The first issue features a position paper on why learning resources require professionally trained managers. The Learning Resources administrators must possess a Masters or Ph.D. in Library and Information Science, Instructional Media, or a related field and have several years' experience performing LR functions. This is the only background that will reliably instill the practical knowledge of LR operations that are prerequisites for effective learning Resources administration. The second issue addresses the lack of access to the disabled. It also provides information on the Distance Education Technical Advisory Committee and the construction of new library facilities on two college campuses. The California Community Colleges have been cited by the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR) for the inability to meet the needs of the visually impaired. Groups within the Chancellor's Office and outside have addressed this docket and a college system response to each of the nine areas was sent to OCR in early fall 1999. The third issue features the survey results evaluating the LRACCC position paper on the need for professional managers. Twenty-four of the forty respondents fully supported the position paper. (JA)
