Summary

This paper describes the North Carolina State University (NCSU) Libraries' experiences in developing distance education services as an example of how to meet the challenge of providing comprehensive, customized information and instructional support for both on- and off-campus learners. The first section provides historical background on distance education at NCSU. The entrance of distance learning into the mainstream is discussed in the second section, including developments in technology, and new relationships and partnerships among faculty, administrators, libraries, technical staff, and students. The third section describes library services for distance learning, including specific initiatives at NCSU, the principle of equity of services for local and distant students, and recognition that technology cannot be substituted entirely for human interaction. Four major categories of library services for distance learning are identified: instructional services; faculty communication and liaison; access to information resources; and reference and consultation services. It is concluded that the most effective and sustainable distance learning initiatives are guided by a vision that combines rapid adoption of innovative technologies with sound pedagogical principles.
