  5. 5. St. Petersburg College Library Facilities and Resources Bachelor of Science in Nursing Profile and Overview Executive Summary of Library Resources and Services Introduction St. Petersburg College is the oldest community college in Florida and one of the colleges authorized to grant four-year bachelors degrees. The M. M. Bennett Library serves the six campuses of the college with campus specific library collections and college wide resources including print, periodicals, databases, and audio visual resources. Overall Library Collections The M.M. Bennett Libraries of St. Petersburg College support college programs with resources and materials specifically to meet the educational needs of students and faculty. The collections include: • Approximately 245,412 total print volumes and materials • Approximately 2,459 serial and periodical subscriptions • 15,739 audiovisual titles • Approximately 57,100 electronic books (54,066 Netlibrary; 3,000 Greenwood; & 44 Gale) • 75 electronic research databases with approximately 22,000 individual titles and nearly a million full text articles Historically St. Petersburg College libraries have always had strong research collections and services. The 2002 Florida Community College Library Collection Assessment ranked St. Petersburg College library third in the state in number of monographic titles and first in its peer group (large colleges) in ratio of books to students (26 titles per student). The library ranked second in circulation indicating a high utilization of the collection. Furthermore the analysis of the library collections showed a growth rate of 18% per year. The percentage of books published in the 1990's increased dramatically showing that recent acquisitions have been added. The report stated: "The St. Petersburg distribution of . . . broad subject division closely corresponds to the hypothetical model of an idealized distribution by subject and time intervals. This profile is not accidental. Constant collection management and emphasis on the continued addition of new, current materials are required to maintain such a profile." (Florida Community College Library Collection Assessment 2002, College Center for Library Automation, conducted by Anna Perrault, Professor School of Library and Information Science, University of South Florida.) In coming years, this trend of collection growth and development is 5
  6. 6. expected to continue as the library attempts to meet the needs of the Bachelor’s programs and other new initiatives at the college. Allied Health Center Campus Library The Caruth Health Education Center houses the baccalaureate program in Nursing. The library in the Center features collections to support the college’s Allied Health Programs. The library was renovated in 2001 to encourage collaborative learning. A traditional library was transformed into a center for learning and tutoring that encourages students to work together using specially designed computer tables, special study rooms and a quiet study lounge. The library features • 10,073 print volumes • 3,841 Audio-visuals • 219 print periodical titles • 75 state-of-the-art student computers for accessing library collections and databases, class assignments and tutoring, • An adjacent classroom • Laptop computers available for in-library use. • Five student conference/study rooms for group study and collaborative learning • A large quiet study lounge • Tutoring center with models, charts and other learning tools. Staffing In the initial planning stages for the College baccalaureate programs, the technical services librarian, periodical librarian, campus librarian, and baccalaureate program librarians assemble recommended sources for purchasing. For the Nursing program, the campus librarian and the two baccalaureate level librarians have examined existing resources and ordered new resources. Baccalaureate Librarians work in liaison regularly with the Nursing Dean and the faculty to formulate a plan for resource acquisition and other services. The Technical Services Librarian and Director assist in overall acquisitions direction. There are two full time librarians for the four-year bachelor programs. Both librarians have Master’s Degrees in Library and Information Science. One librarian has over 14 years experience as a Librarian and faculty member at SPC; experience in conducting research workshops and classes; and expertise in web site development, distance learning and instructional technology. The second librarian’s background includes a BA in Business Management, a Masters in Library Science, public speaking experience and community involvement. Additional staffing includes part time librarians. In addition, the HEC Head Librarian and other campus librarians work with the overall programs in the Allied Health areas. Librarians belong to professional medical library associations and enroll in continuing education workshops as part of their professional growth. The HEC library serves as headquarters for the college Inter Library Loan service to acquire journal articles and reports needed by students and faculty to supplement its own collections. The adjacent tutoring center is staffed by several professional staff members who assist with all areas of general and course based learning needs. 6
  7. 7. Library Instruction, Liaison and Collaboration Program librarians focus on faculty and student library orientations and liaison work. • Faculty members are introduced to library services and library resources for the Nursing program through informational packets and ongoing discussion. • Complete Online Library Research Orientations were developed and made available for every student in the program, via Library Online. Additionally, traditional library instructions can be scheduled at the library for interested students. • New students receive a letter of welcome and introduction to library services. A follow-up email is sent which provides details and instructions for accessing resources. • Information Literacy principles are identified for subject areas and will be incorporated into research lessons. Among them: o Students will be introduced to the concepts of authority, scope and consensus in scholarly journals and reports. o Students will become familiar with the research tools and publications of their professional area. o Students will learn to do effective searching utilizing tools such as Boolean operators, thesaurus functions (CINAHL headings), wildcard and other protocols. o Students will learn critical thinking skills. • Research handouts were developed for subject specific databases, such as Ovid, CINAHL, Health Source Nursing Academic, and MEDLINE. These are made available online to every student in program. In continuing liaison work, librarians attend weekly program meetings and met regularly with program faculty for ongoing selection of books, periodicals, web site additions and other materials. Librarians work with faculty to identify and provide services in support of programs. Library Online Collections/Services and Distance Services Library Online, http://www.spcollege.edu/central/libonline/, is the web site for the M.M. Bennett Libraries and serves as a gateway to library services. Library Online sees approximately 300,000 hits or uses from students and faculty per month. Library Online’s services and collections were expanded and will continue to be developed to better support program needs, in particular, distance learners: • A new web section was created for Bachelor’s programs and added to the web site. This section served as a jumping off point leading to subject specific web resources, research guides and other useful information for each program. • Angel Student Commons. Librarians maintain a library section in each Bachelor program LMS Students Commons. Here updates, tutorials and special access points and collections are regularly updated. • Chat instruction and online reference help. Librarians offer to conduct full library instructions for classes via chat. Librarians also announce that they are available their email address posted prominently for students to ask reference questions. 7
  8. 8. • Collections - subject specific web sites and resources were identified, evaluated and added to assist students and faculty with research. The collections include: ebooks, e-journal articles, subject specific web sites and other tools. • Online Research tutorials were developed for subject specific databases, such as Academic Search Premier, CINAHL, Health Source, and MEDLINE. These are made available online to every student in program. • General research guides on APA were expanded. • AskALibrarian was implemented for online research assistance. Program and campus librarians will continue to work with Nursing Baccalaureate faculty, students and administrators to determine collection and service needs to support the program. As technologies and program needs evolve, new delivery systems will be explored. Program Evaluation and Assessment The libraries use a variety of tools to evaluate program services: • Yearly User Survey. On a yearly basis, the library conducts a Survey of Student/Faculty Satisfaction, which is available online for distance students. A variety of questions about specific resources and services are included. Responses are collated, quantified and separated into specific categories. Each category of service or resources is evaluated for improvement. Recommendations are made for specific actions. Additionally, SPC’s Enrolled Student Survey provides feedback on general library performance. o Sample findings:  94% of students found the library helped with academic success (up from 90% previous year)  Overall Library instructions rated 8.33-9.13 grade on scale of 10 o Comments  “We gained a lot of invaluable information from that (library instruction) session, such how to navigate the site, what resources were available…and who to go to if we needed assistance.”  “I attribute a large portion of my academic success to then online library. It is most valuable as a time saving but authoritative tool”.  “The library has all of the info. . . I need to complete assignments…” • Database/Library Online Usage Studies and Analysis. Student and faculty use of specific research databases such as Ovid, CINAHL, Health Source Nursing plus services such as E-Reserves will be collected and analyzed. Based on this analysis, decisions about future subscriptions and web development can be made. • Annual Accountability Report. This report records the expenditures for each year and lists representative purchases for library collections. New purchases are selected based on curriculum and class assignments as well as core collection needs. The formal analysis tool helps identify trends and needs in the collection and planning for future purchases. • Collection Analysis. A formal analysis of the collection is undertaken. The analysis includes measuring the size and date of collection, circulation or usage statistics and staff/faculty input. Electronic database usage is also evaluated. Collection Analysis is ongoing for bachelor’s program resources as new classes are introduced. 8
  9. 9. • Library Instruction. With each library research instruction performed, instructors receive a Library Instruction Evaluation form. This form allows feedback on content and style of instruction. Online orientations are evaluated by faculty for further input. In addition, the annual survey provides feedback on instruction and is used to improve library orientations. • Faculty Liaison. One of the most effective program evaluation tools is continual liaison work with program faculty, staff and administrators. Librarians make regular faculty visits to discuss resources and services. • Online Library Resource Request. Faculty and students can use a form on the Library Online to recommend the acquisition of specific titles. Existing Collections The Caruth Health Education Library supports eleven degree programs, nine certificate programs and the College of Nursing, one of the first baccalaureate programs approved for the College. The resources are thoroughly examined each year for currency and authority. The goal for the library collections is to ensure that, with the exception of historical materials, all resources are current within the last 5 years. Library Collection Development Process Collection Development. The original list of proposed purchases was developed through formal collection development policies and procedures. Library staff determined institutions with Bachelor of Science degrees in Nursing programs, and proposed literature and resources that best represented current practices. Campus library staff used various recommended selection aids (Choice, etc.) to assemble lists for potential purchase. Faculty provide valuable input on resources and all formats. Librarians work closely with faculty committees for the selection and approval of materials. Additionally, Technical Services Librarian, the Director of the Library, and the Curriculum and Instruction Committee Course outlines approved by the Curriculum and Instruction Committee provided guidance. In addition, using the online catalog, in planning collections purchasing, the SPC libraries kept in mind the state and regional reciprocal arrangements which extend student access to other collections. Books and materials are cataloged by Library of Congress classification system and accessed by students through the online catalog. The library supports Inter Library Loan services including Docline for additional materials. Collection Development Policy As the curriculum is the most important influence on the development of the M. M. Bennett Library collection, it is very important that librarians obtain suggestions and advice about materials selection from the faculty and the administration. Recommendations from students are welcomed. Faculty members participate in collection development and are consulted by departmental liaison librarians regularly concerning recommendations for purchase of needed materials. Selection and budget allocation responsibility is retained by the library. Faculty members also are surveyed regularly to measure how well the library serves the needs of the programs and courses of study. Administrators are consulted on a regular basis for selection advice and significant additions to the collection also will be reported to the campus administration. Students are encouraged to make suggestions 9
  10. 10. via the Library Materials Selection Form located at each library and available on the library homepage. Library Material Request forms are available on the library homepage and in each library for faculty, staff, students, administrators and others to make suggestions for library materials for consideration. As is stated in the SPC Faculty Manual, it is the policy of SPC through its libraries to select, commensurate with budgetary and space allocations, books, electronic resources, audio-visuals and related materials that support 1. The aims and objectives of the college. 2. The content of courses offered in the curriculum of a given campus. 3. The teaching methods of faculty members of a site. 4. The special needs of the students of a site. 5. The needs of distance learners and faculty. The college also supports the tenet that academic integrity and responsibility to the college community include free access to materials representing divergent points of view concerning controversial problems and issues.

  18. 18. Accountability Report Health Education Center Library Acquisitions College of Nursing BSN Program 2005/2006 St. Petersburg College is among the leaders in providing electronic resources, and our students are making good use of them. Circulation remains high for the traditional printed resources. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is creating a need for a more comprehensive library collection. The M.M. Bennett Libraries have been taking a balanced approach to these issues, expanding the electronic collections while increasing the depth and scope of printed materials. The College of Nursing’s, BSN program has employed the library to focus on updating collections in specific areas of the curriculum and in subjects that are heavily used by the students and faculty. The addition of the University Partnership Center and other baccalaureate programs has made funds available for the development of resources to support curriculum in those areas. Libraries anticipate accreditation concerns by providing contemporary, comprehensive, and relevant resources at the appropriate level. Emphasis on the continuing development of electronic resources remains a priority. The increase in online courses, along with interest from busy students in all of the Health Education Center programs, has created strong demand for online resources. The Netlibrary electronic book collection of scholarly and curriculum based books exceed 54,700 titles. Additionally, the library subscribes to Ovid Essentials Nursing Collection, Health Source: Nursing Academic Edition, CINAHL, Taber’s Online Medical Reference, and Academic Search Premier, all of which contain a large number of full text nursing documents and abstracts. To create this report we used a variety of statistical reports from the Community College Library Automation (CCLA). The overall goals from the BSN Program Library Expenditure Plan for 2005/2006 are listed below: • To provide materials for program courses offered in the BSN Program such as: o Aging and End of Life Issues o Community Health Nursing Theory o Health Assessment and Physical Appraisal o Introduction to Nursing Research o Leadership Practicum o Leadership Theory
  19. 19. o Legal and Ethical Aspects of Nursing o Nursing in a Multicultural Society o Professional Roles and Dimensions Of Nursing Practice • To continue to spend heavily for electronic resources to support distance and campus students. • To make available print and non-print materials to the students in the Bay Vista Cohort when necessary. Baccalaureate Program Librarians, Betty Gaston and Donna Kelly, will continue to focus on these goals and the development of all the four year programs.
