E-Learning Special Interest Group

NOTE: The E-Learning SIG was disbanded in December 2012.  E-Learning web pages will be archived and no longer maintained.

E-learning is a significant feature of education and training for librarianship and information science. Intranets are being used to support 'regular' students on and off campus, while the Web is becoming an increasingly common medium for supporting distance learning. The Internet currently provides distance learning opportunities ranging from short 'refresher' courses and introductions to new aspects of professional practice, through to programmes that lead to both initial and advanced qualifications in the field.

E-learning also impacts library services in terms of their provision of learning resources and information literacy and reference services to support communities of users that are increasingly networked, creating increasing pressure for electronic services.

The E-learning Special Interest Group aims to provide a timely forum for discussion of opportunities and issues related to the provision of e-learning for libraries and librarians.
