Collaboration in Online Teaching: Library Instruction and Education Research
Maina, Faith; Shaffer, Barbara
Journal of Interactive Online Learning, v5 n1 p82-93 Spr 2006
Recent explosion of online teaching has brought unique challenges for libraries as they strive to provide access to necessary resources and services for distance learners. These challenges are increased by the desire to provide the same level of library services to distance learners as to their on-campus counterparts. In response, many libraries are increasing electronic resources and developing special services, including online library instruction. However, little has been done to document the impact of this access on students' learning and their satisfaction. This paper presents some evidence of students' satisfaction and increased proficiency in research, as a result of direct library instruction for students in an action research course offered through SUNY Learning Network (SLN).
