Library Support for UNL Distant Learners.
Adams, Kate
Distance education strategies offer the potential to overcome barriers of time and distance. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries have been providing an array of services to distant learners enrolled in UNL graduate degree programs. This paper reviews the services that the UNL Libraries have developed, describes current objectives, and discusses the role of the Libraries in the University's planning process for distance education. The three components of the University Libraries' distance education program are: (1) remote access to electronic resources; (2) liaison librarian for reference assistance and instruction; and (3) delivery of materials to distance education students, mainly through interlibrary loan. Technological changes are affecting librarians, teaching faculty, and distant students. As the UNL Libraries partner with other units within the University and the state, they are well-positioned to respond to technological change and deliver high quality service to distance education students. Three appendices include two flyers on library services to UNL distance education students, and a list of handouts distributed to distance education students for the 1996 summer session. (Author/SWC)
