An Organizational Model for Instructional Support at a Community College

An Organizational Model for Instructional Support at a Community College. This article is by Jacqueline Mundell, Coryl Celene-Martel, and Tom Braziunas. It was published in Information Technologies and Libraries, Volume 22, Number 2 June 2003.

From the site:

The Instructional and Information Support Services (IISS) division at North Seattle (Wash.) Community College brings together the college’s Library, Media Services, and Distance Learning (DL) units, and the Teaching and Learning Center to support instruction campus-wide under a dean with a required MLS. With its active instructional focus, the Library is integral to the division. IISS is also the administrative home of Interdisciplinary Studies. This organizational model promotes interaction, collaboration, and innovation among disparate units that have the same overall goal of fostering teaching excellence and student success. A connection to Internet II and a campus gigabit backbone make possible a variety of advanced technological options to enhance instruction.
