Mayende, Jackline Estomihi Kiwelu; Obura, Constant Okello
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v7 n4 p372-383 2013
The study carried out at Makerere University and Uganda Martyrs University in 2010 aimed at providing strategies for enhanced distance learning library services in terms of convenience and adequacy. The study adopted a cross sectional descriptive survey design. The study revealed services provided in branch libraries in Ugandan universities were inadequate compared to the main libraries in the main campuses. The library services were convenient to a few of distance learners. About 209 (61.8%) learners from the two universities studied could not easily access the library services provided in the universities and 18 (5.3%) did not access them at all.
