Delivering Off-Campus Library Services in Northern California.
Cookingham, Robert M.
This paper describes the development of a library support system at California State University (CSU), Chico, which enables off-campus students who attend live television lectures transmitted from campus to have the same, or better, access to learning resources as on-campus students. Background information provided includes a description of the Instructional Television Fixed Service (ITFS) program, which transmits the lectures via a two-way audio and one-way video communications network. Discussion of the library extended support service, as it is evolving under the direction of a visiting librarian, focuses on three areas: (1) making all units of the university aware of library off-campus and on-campus services; (2) providing off-campus students with access tools or points, including not only printed and microform indexes, but also online bibliographic searching services and dial-up access to the library's computerized card catalog/circulation system; and (3) making materials available in the extended campus region, primarily through the interlibrary loan system. Cooperation with local libraries and the public library network in Northern California is stressed. (Author/ESR)
