Pathway to the Future: A Report from the Distance Learning Committee to the Kansas Library Network Board.
Kansas Library Network Board, Topeka.
The Kansas Library Network Board (KLNB) appointed a Distance Learning Committee to investigate the possibilities for more effective cooperative arrangements between institutions sponsoring distance learning classes and local libraries. This document contains two sets of recommendations to the KLNB. The first set describes how the KLNB might assist Kansas in building the information infrastructure it needs for the future. The second set describes how the KLNB might provide immediate relief to libraries serving distance learners. The report examines the current distance learning environment in Kansas, emerging issues for distance education, the information explosion and its implications for libraries, and the Kansas state information infrastructure.
