The MiraCosta College Library promotes academic success, lifelong learning, an appreciation of knowledge, and a diversity of thoughts, opinions, and ideas. In support of this mission and the educational mission of MiraCosta College, the MiraCosta College Library has established the following goals:
The MiraCosta College Library Assessment Plan guides the Library Department’s efforts to fulfill its mission and the educational goals of the college. Current outcomes that are regularly assessed and discussed focus on the areas of instruction, resources, and services.
As a result of library instruction (e.g., reference interactions, research orientations, workshops), students will locate relevant sources of information to accomplish a stated information need.
All students will have ample access to library information and technological resources, both in the library and online, that support and supplement the college curriculum, course assignments, student success, and lifelong learning.
The library will support student success by providing all students with appropriate library services, both in-person and online, to meet students’ academic needs.
