    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.
