Scope and content

Series documents the Management Indicators for British Columbia College and Institute Learning Resources Centres Project, an initiative undertaken from 1977 to 1981 by the Council of Post-Secondary Library Directors (CPSLD) College Library Standards & Accreditation Committee and its Sub-Committee on Role Definition. Initially called the “Standards for B.C. College and Institute LRCs,” the project was initiated to draft standards (also referred to in the records as “guidelines” and “management indicators”), role statements, and a working definition of the term “Learning Resource Centre” (LRC) in the B.C. post-secondary context. CPSLD considered updated standards imminently necessary due to shifting budgetary and reporting procedures triggered by the Colleges and Provincial Institutes Act of 1977 and the allocation of LRC funding to the Management Advisory Council in November 1978. The project developed quantitative criteria based on the following six areas to inform standards: budget, collections, staff, services, A/V equipment, and facilities. A report on Phase I of the project, which gathered and analyzed material relating to community college standards and their development, was submitted by W. E. Hanafi and B. E. Husband in January 1979. This report was followed up by an interim report in January 1980 and final report in 1981, both by R. J. Welwood, which assessed individual B.C. LRCs compare to established standards and modified these standards for B.C. institutions.

Series consists of material created and gathered by the Management Indicators for British Columbia College and Institute Learning Resources Centres Project between 1977 and 1980. It includes standards, reports, budgets, questionnaires, role statements, notes, correspondence, and other material relating to Canadian and U.S. LRCs for the project.
