Quality and accreditation


One of CoLRiC’s primary aims is to improve the quality of college library and learning resource services in Further Education and Sixth Form Colleges across the UK. Assessment, benchmarking and the celebration of creativity and innovation are key elements in this process.

Our prestigious peer accreditation scheme, annual survey and awards portfolio help raise the visibility of services by:

  • Encouraging innovation and creativity
  • Evidencing return on investment
  • Demonstrating the value and impact of library and learning resource services to senior managers and academic staff in support of the wider teaching and learning agenda.
