    • Participants
      • Why are you interested in this topic?
      • Does your institution have a well-established distance education program?

    • Objectives
      • Discuss need for libraries in all educational environments
      • Develop a list of library services for distance learners
      • Highlight models of these types of services and resources
      • Incorporate time for discussion and questions
    • Educational Mission of Libraries
      • Information access and management
      • Support of the curriculum and personal interests
      • Information literacy
      • Lifelong learning
    • Library resources and services in institutions of higher education must meet the needs of all their faculty, students, and academic support staff, wherever these individuals are located -- whether on a main campus, off campus, in distance education or extended campus programs, or in the absence of a campus at all; in courses taken for credit or non-credit; in continuing education programs; in courses attended in person or by means of electronic transmission; or any other means of distance education. -- Guidelines for Distance Learning Library Services
    • ACRL Guidelines
      • “ ACRL Guidelines for Distance Learning Library Services”
        • http://www.ala.org/acrl/guides/distlrng.html
      • Highlights:
        • Access to equivalent library resources and services provided on campus
        • Collaboration with other campus agencies and other libraries
        • Instill lifelong learning through information literacy
        • Promote and assess library integration into courses and overall program
      • … increasingly, the student in a residence hall or at home ten miles away from campus represents a new type of library user, "the periodic distance learner," whose library needs-especially access to electronic information services are not very different from those of a student one hundred or one thousand miles from campus.
