    Abstract

    The Rockingham Regional Campus Community Library opened the doors to its three stakeholder groups on February 8 1998. It is a joint use library that looks after the needs of the City of Rockingham, Challenger Tafe (a technical college) and Murdoch University. The library is built on a regional education precinct 40 kms south of the Perth CBD in Western Australia. The City of Rockingham has a population of over 90,000 people and is served by 3 public libraries.Our library was originally a joint use library with TAFE and the City but an agreement between the three partners was drawn up after the University commenced offering courses at Rockingham in 1996. In April 2007 our library management system showed that we have a patron base of 2873 university students, 4878 TAFE students and over 17000 active city patrons. Our Mission is to provide quality services that meet the information, recreation and learning needs of the local community, the TAFE campus and the University campus by ensuring equitable access to information resources.
