Title: Listening from a distance: A survey of University of Illinois distance learners and its implications for meaningful instruction.
Author(s): Hensley, Merinda Kaye; Miller, Robin E.
Subject(s): Library services for distance education
Abstract: In Spring 2009, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library conducted a significant new survey of distance learners enrolled in off-campus or online graduate programs. Exploring distance learners’ perceptions about and use of library services, the survey of 146 students reveals opportunities to better meet the research needs of distance learners whose graduate work may demand extensive use of library resources. The survey affords insights into distance learners’ communication preferences, and their particular research needs. Findings from this survey have informed one academic library’s strategy to begin addressing important questions in library instruction for distance learners.
