In support of the College’s mission and the Library & Learning Resources (LLR) mission, the Library acts as both a provider of information resources and services, as well a provider of instruction. As such, library faculty have identified both service area outcomes and a student learning outcome for the purpose of outcome assessment.
Library Service Area Outcomes are used to assess the level of efficiency and effectiveness of service areas in support of the department’s mission. The library’s service area outcomes are as follows:
Library & Learning Resources:
Provides collections sufficient to support the teaching and learning mission of the college
Provide library services and programs responsive to the academic needs of and in collaboration with the college community
Provide physical and virtual spaces that supports both collaborative and independent research and learning, and that promote effective access and use of information resources.
The library's Student Learning Outcome maps directly to the College’s GE Area B’s information competency outcome and more broadly to the College’s Institutional Learning Outcome #1 on Information Competency and reads:
Upon successful completion of library instruction, a student is able to locate, evaluate and use information appropriately
