Extending Library Services to Remote Sites: Regis University as Case Study.
Potter, Susan; Boyd, Sandra Hughes
This report considers the ways that the Regis University (Colorado) library has addressed needs created by new adult education programs offered at 10 campus locations in the region, 15 prison sites, a number of corporations, and through independent study. Creation of a new position for a full-time librarian for extended library services and cooperation between the extended library services librarian and the main campus public services librarian are discussed. Initiatives in the following areas defined by the ACRL (Association of College and Research Libraries) Guidelines for Extended Campus Library Services are described: (1) reference assistance, including cooperative library agreements and availability of reference services by telephone, electronic mail, and telefacsimile; (2) computer-based bibliographical and informational services, including use of the existing online catalog system, i.e., CARL (Colorado Alliance for Research Libraries); (3) consultation services provided by the extended services librarian; (4) library user instruction, including on-site assistance and classroom instruction; (5) assistance with non-print media and equipment; (6) reciprocal and contractual borrowing; (7) interlibrary loan services; (8) prompt document delivery; (9) access to reserve materials; and (10) promotion of library services.
