Administering the Community College Learning Resources Program
Community colleges, with more than forty percent of all undergraduate students in the United States, play a valuable role in the American educational system. Their libraries and media centers, or learning resources programs (LRPs), have a particular set of issues and concerns that have not been adequately addressed by the traditional literature on academic libraries. This work is an introduction to the administration of LRPs, placing special emphasis on the nature of the programs, services, and goals of LRPs and the differences between them and other academic libraries. A "mini-MBA" program is presented, covering program planning and evaluation, budgeting and finance, human resources, facilities, and public relations from the perspective of the community college. This book is essential reading for library science students and administrators of community college learning resources programs.
