Abstract:The author attempts to seek out roles of a community college library in globalizing an institution. This study serves a three-fold purpose: 1) to take a closer look at the College’s curricula, as well as library collection and services through a globalization lens, 2) to provide a mechanism in developing library collection that would help librarians employ data-driven decision making that aligns with the curricula, and 3) to design library services for international students and Study Abroad program students who have unique needs, but play an important role in globalizing the institution. The author embarks on a collection development project by using the student learning outcomes of courses that have international slants and enrollment information as datapoints in selecting library materials. In addition, this study lays out plans of providing library services for international students and students of Study Abroad Programs.
