ACCLC Mission

Maximize access to resources and services for Arizona students through collaboration.

ACCLC Vision

Enable member libraries to advance institutional missions through collaboration and innovation.        

Inspired by potential enhancements to digital resource access, as well as operational and economic efficiency, the directors of the community college libraries of Arizona began an effort to form a library consortium. With sponsorship and support from IMLS federal funding, a not-for-profit consortium emerged from this process. Under the authority of the Arizona Community College Coordinating Council (AC4), the Arizona Community College Library Consortium (ACCLC) has a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation status that enables it to best address our collective needs and implementation strategies. To qualify for membership, libraries must be a community college institution and be accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association. Currently all 19 Arizona community college libraries, and both Arizona tribal community colleges, are members of ACCLC. The ten-member board of directors is composed of directors from each community college district. The board of directors has the authority to take charge of, manage, and conduct the business of ACCLC, including formulating a strategic plan. The ACCLC is self-governed and the operations of ACCLC projects are accomplished through a combination of committees. Wherever appropriate, ACCLC will contract with other libraries and consortia to implement or manage discrete projects.
