Providing interactive and engaging library instruction that addresses different learning styles for distance education students is a challenge because there is no face-to-face feedback or specified classroom time. The online librarian at the Minnesota School of Business offers practical solutions that can be accomplished with a small staff. Webinar style of instruction allows students to come together as they would in a classroom. A recording is produced for those who are unable to attend or want to review. In addition to live instruction, other interactive and printable tutorials and reference services meet the needs of distance education students.
