Thinking Outside the Library How to Develop, Implement and Promote Library Services for Distance Learners

Summary

Thinking Outside the LibraryHow to Develop, Implement and Promote Library Services for Distance LearnersSupporting distance learners requires a shift in the traditional “library” mindset. Librarians who serve distance learners must come up with new and innovative ways to meet the needs of their unique users. Librarians must attempt to define and identify who their distance users are and what their needs are, and in turn, develop and implement a set of library resources and services in support of these needs. Promotion of the resources and services available is necessary in order to successfully provide library support; students and faculty must know what services are available and how to access them.
