A comparative study of organizational characteristics used in learning resources centers : and traditionally organized library and audio-visual service facilities in four Minnesota and Wisconsin senior colleges by Dwight Burlingame( )

7 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation was made of the organizational characteristics of two college learning resource centers as compared with two traditionally organized college libraries with separate audiovisual units in order to determine the advantages of each organizational type. Interviews, observation, and examination of relevant documents were used to determine organizational characteristics, types and qualities of resources, facilities, staffing, and services at each institution. The author concluded that the services provided by the two types of organizations are not necessarily different, and that the attitudes of director and staff have the most important influence on the success of the service. A bibliography, letters, and interview documents are attached. (Ls)
