Long Distance Relationships: Assessing the Library Service Needs of Rural Students in eLearning Courses
Sterling, Lorelei; McKay, Jennifer; Ericson, Christine
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v11 n1-2 p140-157 2017
In states with limited road accessibility, rural students can feel isolated from library services. This article explores the creation, implementation, and results of an on-going longitudinal study assessing the library service needs of rural students in eLearning courses. To align with current practices in online pedagogies, including the Association of College and Research Libraries' Standards for Distance Learning Library Services and recent revisions to the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, this survey has been designed to help the library identify and improve services to enhance rural student success.
