OBJECTIVES

The HIGHER EDUCATION LIBRARY MEDIA CENTER derives its objectives from the Institution of which it is a part. It does not exist as an independent institution. If it is to be significant, its services, organization and administration must contribute to the realization of the objectives of the institution it serves.

  1. One of the objectives of the College Library is to enable students of the college to finish their degrees by giving them the opportunity to read and by providing them access to most, if not all, of the reading requirements of the college curriculum. This requires a constantly growing and a dynamically expanding collection of library materials in order to satisfy these reading requirements.
  2. The second important objective is to satisfy the faculty members reading requirements for the courses they teach and other areas where their professional growth can be enhanced. The College Library must therefore provide them with those needs as much as it can.Specifically, the objectives of the College Library in its role as support system for instruction are:
    1. To support the teaching needs of the faculty by providing books, journals and other instructional materials.
    2. To assist the faculty in their instructional and research needs through its various services.
    3. To satisfy the faculty’s reading requirements for the courses they teach and other areas where their professional growth can be enhanced.
    4. To provide the necessary references, instruction and bibliographical services to enable the faculty to take full advantage of the library’s developing policies, strategies and programs.
    5. To provide physical facilities that will make the library a place conducive to learning.
    6. To encourage faculty members to participate in selecting and in procuring materials especially in their areas of specialization.
    7. To accommodate the faculty members requests to place their personal books and other materials on the Reserve Section for the use of their students.
    8. To provide efficient library tools for easy retrieval, e.g. integrated library system
    9. To provide recreational literature and other non-curricular reading materials.
  3. The third objective is to provide reading materials that reflect the needs of the greater college community.
