Library Service Area Outcomes (SAOs) 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:
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 reads:
Upon successful completion of library instruction, a student is able to locate, evaluate and use information appropriately
The library's SLO maps directly to both the College’s General Education Learning Outcome (GELO) Area B - Written Composition #4 and the Institutional Learning Outcome (ILO) 1 - Critical Thinking and Information Competency B.
GELO Area B #4 (Select and integrate reliable, credible, and scholarly sources to support essays, using a standardized citation format).
ILO 1 B (Locate, evaluate, and use information appropriately).
