Cuyamaca Library: Mission & Program Review

PLO 5

PLO 5: Students will identify the information literacy skills of identifying library policies and services that provide them with equitable access to library sources.

How does this PLO 5 support the Library Goal 5? 
     Library goal #5. Improve library spaces that allow students to study and research.  To provide successful programs and services, CC Library relies heavily on our multi-media technicians who work to ensure access to library sources. They provide the work and expertise to acquire sources, process sources, maintain the online catalog records, and more.
     Circulation and Technical Services is defined as units responsible for the following:

  • Circulation (lending and borrowing) services;
  • Interlibrary services,
  • Course Reserves
  • Cataloging
  • Acquisitions
  • Physical processing

      Access and Technical Services Department has experienced more change than other library department as technology continues to transform library services. For example, the migration to licensed databases, online journals and e‐books has changed the workflow for technical services personnel. Other aspects of technical services such as cataloging continue to require labor‐intensive, specialized attention. 

What are the expected outcomes?
Students will successfully identify various library policies and services that provide them with equitable access to library collections and standards for proper use of library materials. Students will report their ability to find circulation and reserve policies and services, with at least 90% satisfaction.

What MoAs will be used to assess this PLO? 
User surveys. Students will be able to identify various library policies and circulation services after receiving instruction from multi-media technicians. 

How will you assess how well this PLO was achieved (performance indicators)?
 User surveys. Students surveyed will identify various library policies and services that provide them with equitable access to library collections and standards for proper use of library materials.
