Library Services for the Distant Learner, The Clarion State College Libraries' Experience.
McCabe, Gerard B.
This paper presents the experience of Clarion State College Libraries in supporting an off-campus program offered for graduate library science students in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and discusses the rationale for off-campus continuing education library service. Descriptions are given of the development of the off-campus library science program and the methods used to provide library materials in support of the program from the Dauphin County Public Library, the Pennsylvania State Library, and Clarion State College's own campus library. There is also a brief discussion of the accreditation of off-campus programs. Reasons for the full library support of off-campus programs are provided as well as a list of recommendations for library support requirements, and an expression of advocacy for state or regional standards covering off-campus library support.
