- Feb 23, 2012Here is a statement written by Paul Karsten, who is working with me on accreditation documentation.
Here is a draft of some language for the ACAOM standard.
Adequacy of learning resources is based on the assessment by the institutional community of the library's capability to support the specific mission and educational goals of the institution. Annual library evaluation by the institutional faculty and students shall provide at minimum assessment data on the adequacy of the following; number of physical texts relevant to the program, physical space available for study, hours of operation, computer resources and online databases, library organization, journal collection appropriate for goals of program, and professional assistance for library users. This survey shall also include opportunities for the community to provide recommendations for library development. This data, along with the annual inventory of library holdings and data on library usage congruent with the school's educational objectives, is used to demonstrate the learning resources are sufficient to support the mission of the institution.
