An Evaluation of Selected ASERL Web Pages: "Best Practices" for Serving Distance Learners
Thomas, Melanie
Journal of Access Services, v5 n1-2 p37-45 2007
With the expansion in quantity of full-text content material made available through online database subscriptions, aggregator services, and over the Internet, the need for print materials seems to have diminished over recent years. Growing, too, are the numbers of students taking advantage of distance learning opportunities, scattered miles and even time zones away from the sponsoring library. Print format is not going away, though, and in order to serve effectively the distance user who happens to need the material, special considerations should be made. A comparison of selected ASERL libraries' distance education information pages was made and the best practices for getting the materials to them in a cost effective, efficient, and convenient manner are presented.
