Professional Development for Community College Librarians

  • North Carolina Community College Library Association
    Founded on December 15, 1967, The North Carolina Community College Library Association (NCCCLA) underwent a series of name changes through the years to accommodate the ever-evolving role of the library in North Carolina community colleges. Known as the North Carolina Community College Learning Resources Association for several decades, the organization came full circle in 2014 when it once again adopted the name of North Carolina Community College Library Association.
  • North Carolina Library Association -The Community & Junior College Libraries Section
    To promote state-wide cooperation among librarians at community colleges, junior colleges and technical institutes, by providing professional development opportunities through activities, programs and discussion. To fulfill the objectives of the North Carolina Library Association.
  • American Library Association - ACRL - Community and Junior College Libraries Section
    Serves to share common areas of interest to enhance library services and librarianship in libraries and learning resource centers in two-year institutions and to support the educational programs of these institutions.
  • ForwardFocus
    ForwardFocus is an annual conference that started in 2012 specifically for community college librarians. The conference takes place in person each fall, but there is also an opportunity for virtual attendees to participate in the conference as well.

Scholarly Communication

  • Core Journals in Library and Information Services
    In the library science field, there is no professionally accepted tiered list of journals in the United States to guide librarians, as there is in other academic disciplines. This situation creates a challenge for both new and experienced librarians who wish to make a serious contribution to librarianship by publishing articles. This article outlines a methodology used at the Libraries of Purdue University, which could be adapted by other university libraries, to create a tiered list of journals tailored to the institution. The article begins with a literature review that identifies a short list of top-level journals. This is followed by the methodology that uses expert opinion surveys, acceptance and circulation rates, impact factors, h-indexes, and journals with local faculty articles. Tables with the journals ranked into three tiers are included.
