Summary

Keep up with new concepts in this fast-changing field! The Internet, distance learning, and remote access to central information banks used to be the stuff of science fiction. Nowadays, academic librarians reap the benefits--and face the practical consequences--of the staggering advances in information technology. Off-Campus Library Services presents the advice and suggestions of experienced librarians to help you develop effective, easy-to-use off-campus information services, including distance learning.

This informative book reveals the secrets of planning and implementing off-campus services. It also helps veteran librarians add user-friendly features and solve common problems on their existing systems. Off-Campus Library Services explains the technology, addresses management issues, and offers usable suggestions for program development.

Off-Campus Library Services explores the central issues of these new services, including:
  • training issues for library staff
  • Web site development
  • technical and information support
  • changing roles for librarians
  • the uses of conferencing software
  • library support for Web-based courses
  • library agreements and how to successfully negotiate them
  • and much more!

    Off-Campus Library Services will become a trusted reference for librarians involved in planning, administering, or updating distance learning resources.
