Henderson Community College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and has programs accredited by discipline agencies such as National League of Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) and the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS). To maintain accreditation with these agencies, appropriate library services are needed. The Hartfield Library determines its level of "appropriateness" by evaluating library efforts against criteria set forth by SACS and the American College and Research Library (ACRL). In addition, the library maintains its linkage to the college's Strategic Plan so that library efforts do not contradict those of the college, that communication with college departments is maintained, and that faculty, staff, and student expectations are satisfied.
