We have started the distance learning project named IDLE (Integrated Distance Learning Environment) in 1998. The primary motivation of beginning the project is to meet the social needs. There are not many practical and sustainable DL systems in Japan, while on the other hand DL is already recognized as a natural form of getting education in the US. Current core product of IDLE is NACSIS-ILL Distance Training System, a WWW based system for training NACSIS-ILL operators. NACSIS-ILL is a system that our institute offers to nearly 700 university libraries to support exchange of information for the inter-library loan service. Our institute also offers NACSIS-ILL Training Courses to train the staff in the inter-library loan sections of the participating libraries. We have put emphasis on its practicality in the project and applied DL to the training course. The system will be in actual use this year.
