This SPEC (Systems and Procedures Exchange Center) Kit presents the results of a survey of Association of Research Libraries (ARL) member libraries. The survey was designed to gather information about the changes that have taken place in the last five years in the services libraries offer to support instruction on campus and in the library, as well as information about partnerships created between libraries and other campus units to provide these services. Information was gathered about the following types of instructional support services: World Wide Web course development; custom Web programming; instructional development; digital imaging and graphics; video production; instructional evaluation; instructional technology; distance learning classroom and instructional development support; and other instructional support services or expertise. A total of 58 of 121 ARL member libraries responded to the survey. A copy of the questionnaire with tabulated results is presented. Representative documents include organization charts, service request and registration forms, library-based service descriptions, collaborative program descriptions, job descriptions, and service evaluation. Selected resources, including books, journal articles, and World Wide Web sites are listed. (Contains 21 references.) (MES)
