Not very well! A look at the numbers:

  • For 2010-11 there were 10,852 unduplicated distance learning students taking a total of
  • 835 DL sections offered at the college across campuses

What had we been doing to support DL students and their library research needs?

  • Nothing
  • Not sure???
  • I thought you were doing it
  • Ask-a-librarian has them covered.
  • They'll be fine. They have Google.

  • We don't have the money
  • We don't have the technical know-how
