Some General Remarks

About 2004–2005

The academic year 2004–2005 began with a terrible event and ended with the Library in a stronger position in terms of personnel than at any time in its history.  In late May 2004, longtime Technical Services Assistant C. T. Davis was the victim of a traffic accident and died at the end of July 2004.  The position he held for over 15 years and served in with great dedication and effectiveness was upgraded to a professional librarian position in August 2004 and renamed Technical Services Librarian.  This position was filled in September by Joseph C. Dawsey.  Mr. Dawsey has responsibility for cataloging, acquisitions, authority control, and database maintenance.

In August 2004, we learned that Christa Poparad, Coordinator for Off-Campus User Services, would leave at the first of September.  Her position was filled in December 2004 by Melanie W. Strals.  The Library realigned the On-Campus and Off-Campus User Services positions so that longtime librarian Jennie Inglis became Coordinator for Off-Campus User Services and Ms. Strals took Ms. Inglis’s former position of Coordinator for On-Campus User Services.  In addition to the reference and instruction, circulation and reserves duties associated with on-campus user services, Ms. Strals is also Serials Librarian. 

In June 2005, the Library received support for a newly created paraprofessional position, Public Services Assistant, the responsibilities of which include management of the Circulation and Reserves Desk and working in the Document Delivery Unit.  This position was filled by lateral transfer within the College.  Lorena G. Rojas began in this  position in July 2005.

This new paraprofessional position is the first completely new position for the Library’s staff in since about 1989.  The staff has certainly changed over the years:  in 1989, there were two full-time professional positions and three full-time paraprofessional positions.  In 1998 and again in 2004, paraprofessional positions were upgraded to professional status.  But from 1989 to 2005, there were only five permanent full-time positions, during a time during which the size of the student body more than doubled and the size of the fulltime faculty more than quadrupled.  The addition of an additional staff member has already greatly improved the Library’s ability to do its work in a more timely, efficient, and effective manner.

            There was another very important development which greatly improves the Library’s ability to reach out to its users.  In August 2004, we learned that the Athens Center of the College had received support to hire a permanent part-time position to staff the Learning Resources Center at the College’s Athens Campus.  It is very lucky that this position was filled with a retired Media Specialist, Barbara Almond.  Media specialists are a variety of librarian trained for both library service and curriculum/teaching support in public schools.  She is available in the late afternoons and evenings for instruction and reference and manages circulation and reserves at Athens, and promotes the Library’s services to its Athens users. 

The Library’s Off-Campus User Survey performed by Jennie Inglis in Spring 2000 provided strong evidence that services at the Athens Center needed significant improvement.  For years, the Learning Resources Center at Athens was staffed with a changing succession of graduate student assistants.  The Library is very glad to have this opportunity to have a permanent professional person to work with in providing the services users expect.

Annual Student Satisfaction Survey

Library Results

This survey is one administered annually in the spring by the Office of Institutional Research, which assesses student satisfaction with various College offices and services.  It also shows a comparison with the previous survey’s results, and it can be seen that the satisfaction level with the Library and its services rose appreciably during the periods compared.

Public Services Department

Reference & Instruction

The mission of the Reference and Instruction Unit of the Public Services Department is twofold: 

 

The activities of the Unit are given direction and focus principally by two of the Library’s Purpose Statements given above: 

 

            As an example of the first point of the Unit’s mission, such activities involve developing and providing structured presentations to classes both as a regular feature of certain courses — for example, PC101, Freshmen Orientation, and the School of Education’s Research courses — and at the request of faculty to suit the needs of individual classes. 

            As an example of the second point of the Unit’s mission, those activities involve point-of-need instruction and assistance, which is available from the librarians and the library’s staff at any time the library is open, and especially at the times a librarian is available at the Reference Desk.  Thus, the user can come to the Reference Desk and ask for one-on-one instruction in research skills and the research environment or simply to ask a quick question.  This kind of assistance is also available by telephone and e-mail.

            The Unit provides instruction at a number of venues depending on class locations.  Many on-campus classes meet at the computers in the Reference Area of the 3rd floor for instruction by the Coordinator of On-Campus User Services or one of the other librarians.  Classes at the Athens Center of the College have presentations in the computer labs there from the Media Specialist at the Athens Learning Resources Center or from the Coordinator for Off-Campus User Services.  The remote education cohort classes all receive instruction as part of their various educational research classes, provided on-site by the Coordinator of Off-Campus User Services. 

            In the following table, Instructional Activity by Type and Location, it can be seen that the Reference and Instruction Unit of the Library reached a significant number of the College’s students with formal instruction in 2004–2005.  It should be noted that the enrollment for the Fall Semester of 2004–2005 was approximately 2,200.  Thus, the Unit provided instructional opportunities for over 75% of the student body.  It should be noted again here, as was noted in the General Remarks for this year, before 2004–2005, there was no professional on site at the Athens Center to promote and provide the Library’s services.  The number of instructional and reference contacts now reportable from Athens represents the fulfillment of a long-range goal the Library has cherished for a number of years.

            As can be seen from the following table, Reference Activity by Type and Location, the Unit provided numerous instances of point-of-need instruction and assistance.  The Library uses two categories and parses one category further by the location of the user to give more detail. 

            Reference Questions are questions and requests for assistance which are academic, class-related, research-related.  Some examples are:  How can I find journal articles about Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass?  How can I find the latest research on the instruction of middle-school gifted students?  How can I find statistics on the types and numbers of crimes committed in the Southeast in the last 10 years.  The Library further categorizes such questions by whether the user contacts us in person at Demorest or Athens or contacts us by telephone or by e-mail through the Ask a Librarian service.

            Other Assistance are questions and requests for assistance which are directional or procedural in nature.  Some examples include:  Where is the restroom?  Please help me recover a lost computer file.  How can I get a copy of my transcript? How do I use netLibrary electronic books?  What is my Ezproxy username and password?

Circulation & Reserves

The mission of the Circulation and Reserves Unit of the Public Services Department is to provide timely, accurate management of all types of library materials as they circulate to users.  This mission is given direction and focus by this statement from the Library’s Missions and Purposes Statements:

·         to provide access to the world of resources both within and outside of the bounds of the Library, which will support the College's academic programs of study;

 

The activities of the Unit include responsibilities such as:

·         operation of the circulation desk, including charging and discharging of materials; correspondence with users about overdue or missing materials;

·         operation of the reserves desk, including receiving and processing of materials and charging and discharging them;

·         shelving and stacks management; management of the media collection, including charging and discharging and shelving;

·         management of a public-access copy machine.

 

The following table shows the number of non-reserve items charged and renewed in 2004–2005 by item type and by school/department.  The total number of circulations was 7,204 last year.

Document Delivery

The mission of the Document Delivery Unit of the Public Services Department is: 

 

The activities of the Document Delivery Service are given direction and focus by these statements from the Library’s Mission and Purposes Statements: 

 

            There are two main subdivisions in document delivery:  one is the service long known as Interlibrary Loan (ILL), where a library borrows books or journal articles from other libraries.  ILL also includes the lending of Arrendale Library’s materials to other libraries, in accordance with the requirements of participation in state, regional, and national ILL groups.  As can be seen, lending is nearly as significant part of the Document Delivery Unit’s activity as borrowing.

            The other side of document delivery services is supplying materials from the Arrendale Library’s collections to users who may be remote from either of the Library’s locations.  This service could be called intra-library loan.  The Library supplies Athens or Cohort users on request with materials which are normally located at Demorest; and we supply Demorest or Cohort users with materials normally located at Athens; and we supply Cohort users with materials normally located at either Demorest or Athens.  The majority of the usage shown is attributable to providing cohort users with journal articles and books from the Library’s collections.

Library Administration

            The mission of the Library’s Administration is to facilitate all of the Library’s everyday work and long-term planning using the Mission and Purposes of the Library as a framework.  This mission is given further focus and direction by the parts of the College’s Vision, Mission and Goals for 2005–2010 quoted above.  The Administration is particularly concerned with these two statements from the Library’s Mission and Purposes, which have not been addressed thus far in this document:

 

·         to provide, beyond the immediate needs of the academic program, a selection of resources that portray the intellectual heritage of humanity;

·         to provide an environment that encourages the most effective use of the Library by faculty, staff, and students;

 

Managing the Building

Regarding the Library building and its environment, the Administration is very concerned to maintain a pleasant, safe working environment in the Arrendale Library building for the Library’s users and for the Library’s staff.  Accordingly, the building’s security and physical environment is constantly monitored to forestall problems before they arise.  In addition to what is required of Library faculty and staff professionally, all staff are trained to deal with common problems such as what to do when various alarms sound; how to report problems with lights or the restrooms; how to communicate with Campus Security in the event of unacceptable behavior in the building; how to deal with users and the Library’s food and drink policies; how to call for help with the elevator; how to adjust the thermostats; and so on. 

 

Collection Development

The Library Administration has the responsibility to shape the content of the Library’s collections, both to satisfy immediate curricular needs and to provide the representative sample of the intellectual heritage of humanity spoken of in the Library’s Mission and Purposes.  The collection development effort relies partly on the subject expertise of the College’s faculty.  The Administration works with department chairs, deans, the Library Subcommittee of the Curriculum & Programs Committee, and the College’s Administration to create an equitable allocation of funds to the various divisions of the College and to plan for future developments.  As part of the Collection Development Program, the Administration and the Library’s faculty make themselves aware of problems in the collections, and as time and funds allow, replacements for lost titles are purchased, as are new titles to fill in significant gaps in subject coverage.

 

Assessment & Planning

The Library Administration has the responsibility to lead the assessment of the Library’s efforts and to plan for the Library’s future.  It does so in consultation with the Library’s faculty and staff, the College’s administration, and the Library Committee, which includes student representation. 

As the Library’s Administration reviews immediate needs, it realizes that the assessment efforts of the Library are not sufficient to satisfy either institutional reporting requirements nor our own professional ideals.  One of the Library’s most important goals for 2004–2005 is to create a useful and effective assessment program. 

The Administration of the Library is also preparing to do its part as the College creates the documentation needed to support the upcoming Reaffirmation of Accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools.  Fulfilling these responsibilities will be a major part of the Library’s work during 2004–2005 and will support the work of the previous goal.

Last, the Administration of the Library is already involved in preliminary planning for a significant expansion of facilities, services, and collections at the College’s Athens Center.  Whatever form the new Athens Center of the College takes, planning for these new developments will form a prominent part of the Library’s planning efforts in 2004-2005.
