Revised Guidelines for Media Resources in Academic Libraries

The ACRL Board of Directors has approved a new revision of the association’s Guidelines for Media Resources in Academic Libraries. Prepared by the ACRL Guidelines for Media Resources for Academic Libraries in Higher Education Task Force, the revision incorporates evolving technology used in teaching, learning, research, and scholarship has created new challenges and opportunities for the stewardship of media collections and services in academic libraries at community college, college, and university libraries. The goal of the revised Guidelines for Media Resources for Academic Libraries is to present key issues that academic libraries should consider and address in developing media collections, services and programs. These guidelines represent best practice in weaving the libraries’ media resources and technologies into the fabric of faculty and students’ teaching, learning and research experience.
