Abstract

The Florida Community College Assessment Project is the first reported statewide assessment for community college collections using quantitative data extracted from a network information system. The collection analysis is based upon bibliometric data extracted from LINCC, the Library Information Network for Community Colleges in Florida. The analysis of the aggregated resources base by imprint year shows that the resources of Florida community colleges are significantly out of date with outdated materials prevalent in all major subject divisions including the sciences and health sciences. This is the only reported project to analyze data from a network collective resources base of community college holdings by subject and age of publication.
