Mission & Priorities

Dora Badollet Library & Learning Commons Departmental Planning 2018 - 2023

The Dora Badollet Library at Clatsop Community College serves the students, staff, and faculty of the campus, and offers services to the greater community. The library houses approximately 35,000 items and a robust set of online resources. The Learning Commons provides a space where technology, instructional assistance, and study spaces intersect. This plan was created with the mission, vision, values and core themes of the College in mind, and in response to the strategic initiatives identified in the Clatsop Community College: Charting Our Course Strategic Planning Focus Areas, 2018-2023 document.i

Library Mission

Clatsop Community College’s mission statement is Enriching Lives, Inspiring Learning, Creating Opportunities; the vision statement is ‘As a leader in education, CCC will partner with the community in creating gateways for transformation.’ The Library’s mission is to support the college by providing resources, services, and instruction to support the teaching, learning, and inspiration of students, staff, faculty, and the greater community.

Library & Learning Commons Strategic Planning

In responding to the College’s strategic planning process, the Library Director, in consultation with the faculty Library Advisory Group (LAG), has identified four overarching goals that advance the College’s Vision, Mission, and Core Themes.

Goals

    • Collections and learning resources are monitored, updated and improved
    • Facilities and equipment are updated to meet current needs of patrons
    • Programming, and instruction support college mission, values, core themes and strategic initiatives
    • Collaborative initiatives promote education, culture, environment and social justice

Specific activities within each larger goal, each with intended outcomes and indicators of achievement, advance that goal and corelate to Clatsop Community College’s Core Themes and Strategic Goals while linking to Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) accreditation standards.

The Dora Badollet Library recognizes the American Library Association Library Bill of Rights and the Association of College and Research Libraries Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education as formative contextual documents upon which our service and instructional endeavors are informed.
