Abstract

This paper presents a program overview of library services to distance education students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). In the fall of 1997, a survey on use of library services was sent to students in an interdepartmental master's program. Questions focused on the use of the library online catalog, the World Wide Web, and the Internet; reference assistance provided by liaison librarians; ease of requesting library materials, as well as the delivery of these materials; use of academic libraries other than UNL; demographic or statistical data; and suggestions for improvements of library services to remote users. Findings showed that students were more likely to use libraries other than UNL; the three other libraries in the University of Nebraska system were used more frequently, as were other academic and community college libraries. There was little use of public libraries. A survey was also sent to faculty who had taught classes in the master's program. In general, respondents appeared to require the same use of library resources for distance education classes as for on-campus classes. Support for distance education at the UNL libraries is provided by the Distance Education Coordinator, liaison librarians, the Interlibrary Loan Office, and circulation staff. (AEF)
