Delivering Distance Library Services: What Works, What Doesn't, and Where Do We Go From Here?

Delivering Distance Library Services was presented by CLA's Academic Interest Group, via WebEx, May 2, 2012.

With the major push in e-resources and distance education, it is imperative that librarians begin to plan and assess distance library services. However, many libraries do not have a designated distance services librarian, and even when they do, providing distance services often falls upon librarians who have not been trained in this area.

The USC Libraries have been providing library services to distance students at a rapid pace. Over the last few years USC has expanded its online master's degree programs to over 3,000 students. With no extra budget, the librarians have stepped up and worked with their departments to lead the way in providing valuable and innovative library services to students who never set foot on campus.

This webinar walked attendees through the opportunities for offering exemplary distance library services without huge financial investment and provided information that will allow them to plan, assess, and learn from the pitfalls of librarians on the frontline of distance education.
