Distance Learning

The ACRL/NY Distance Learning Discussion Group convenes to tackle topics that can inform, inspire, encourage and otherwise rejuvenate librarians who are working through the challenges and victories that come with supporting a variety of distance learners, faculty,  and researchers.  We look forward to membership input on suggested topics, speakers, handy tricks, low-threshold-technology solutions, and the sharing of successes and failures of those of us who are taking up the challenge of providing library services at a distance.
