ACADEMIC SUPPORT  Resource Professionals (e.g. librarians, media coordinators/specialists, learning assistance center directors/staff) gather, organize, circulate, develop, and evaluate resources in support of the educational mission of the college. They also provide instructional faculty with expertise through their knowledge of learning resources and styles, alternate learning modes or methods for the assessment of student learning; in settings outside of the classroom, they organize learning activities for students, including providing instruction on information literacy or study skills.

To discharge this responsibility, they must support and facilitate faculty, staff, and student use of resources, and must contribute to the improvement of the quality and availability of resources.
