Publisher's Description
This book covers all aspects of librarianship that apply to community colleges. It provides information that enables the librarian to become more successful in the community college environment and reflects on its unique qualities, identifying the specific skills required and the differences from other library settings. The authors address instructional design and highlight the distinctions in the types of information literacy appropriate to the specialized curriculum and certification needs of a community college. Besides being an outstanding professional development tool, this handbook will also be useful to library and information science students studying service in community college libraries as a career option.
