Services include the circulation of library materials, instruction in use of resources and services, interlibrary loan, reference services, database searching, computer usage, resource sharing with several organizations through cooperative agreements, instruction in the use of the library, production of College IDs, proctoring site for SWGTC students, and scheduling and checking out of state vehicles.
Selection and Elimination of Materials
The responsibility for coordinating the selection of informational resources, equipment and supplies rests with the Library/Media Services staff. Input is obtained from faculty, staff, students, business, and industry through surveys, and annual staff meetings to evaluate the resources. Specific criteria are used to remove resource materials from the collection consistent with the goals of the Library/Media Service Center.
The Vice President for Academic Affairs has the overall responsibility for ensuring this policy is implemented.
