Lifelong learning is now a reality throughout the world, requiring that learning opportunities and materials are delivered to citizens in their locality, at home or at work. Increasing numbers of students are undertaking distance education programmes and libraries are being called upon to find innovative ways to support distance learners. Developments in technology are creating new possibilities for document delivery and the distributed virtual library. This edited collection is drawn from the fifth Libraries Without Walls Conference, held in 2003, which addressed the key strategic issues arising from international, regional and cross-sectoral approaches to the provision of library services to distant users. It is recognized as the premier resource for all needing to keep updated on distance learner and virtual library issues. Papers submitted by leading professionals worldwide include the following themes: the integration of library services and Virtual Learning Environments; the relationship between user needs; information skills and information literacies; usability and accessibility of digital library services; designing the information environment: national and international perspectives; the creation of digital resources by user communities. This state-of-the-art collection will enable library managers and information professionals in all sectors to keep abreast of the latest developments in this vital area. It will also assist educational specialists and course developers in increasing their understanding of the role and importance of information in the learning process

Harmonising the process of procuring library management systems : a feasibility study ( )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The aim of this research was to determine the feasibility of developing and disseminating a model system specification which could be used to assist and guide libraries in the procurement of library management systems. Forty one specifications, collected from libraries which had recently acquired a library management system, were analysed. The results demonstrate that the specifications include the same broad categories of information and requirements, with the majority specifying requirements for all or most of the core modules (cataloguing, acquisitions, circulation, serials). The functional requirements specified for each of the core modules had strong similarities both within and across the sectors (public, academic, special). A survey of UK system suppliers was also undertaken to determine the collective view of suppliers on the role, content, quality and usefulness of the specification as a procurement tool."
